I know this is not our war but it is stupendous. They are not re-enactors. Done by Marina Amaral - wish she would do "B" Company.

I have that photo in black & white - many years ago, there was two campaigns in focus sets, each with 40 good quality 8 x 10 photographs, on photo paper of the Crimea and Afgan War......it's a pity no one has done it for the ZW.

They are really great, that one has been around a few years..
there are loads online, the ACW is very well represented.
many of Custer, Grant Sheridan ect, my favorite is a fine
portrait of Col Robert Gould Shaw 54th Massachusetts.. him
from the wonderful film Glory.

Hi chaps,

One or two of you are already aware of this, but I approached Marina about doing an Anglo-Zulu War book in colour around 18 months ago. Marina and myself agreed to run with the project and we had a publisher lined up who wanted to take it on. Marina provided me with a sample of an AZW photograph that was sent to her which was fantastic.

I had to put the project on the back-burner due to other commitments (a WWI book that I was contracted to write). Marina was happy to wait but by the time I got back to her she had just signed a contract for a book with Dan Brown which has literally just been released - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Marina's contract stipulated that she couldn't release anything before this one was out, so we once again put the project on the back-burner.

We are both still very keen on doing it, as is the publishing company.

It wasn’t uncommon for photographic studios to hand tint photographs in the 1870’s.

I have a coloured full plate of the ponts at Rorke’s Drift, I presume it was tinted by one of the Kisch brothers.

In the meantime here’s an officer from the KDGs:

Les,

A minor point about the Robert Gould Shaw image, whoever colourised it has depicted him as a cavalryman rather than an infantryman.

I was lucky enough to see his memorial in Boston back in September.

Hi Les, yes, the shoulder boards/straps should have been in light blue and not yellow, other than that it's a good image of Robert Gould Shaw of the 54th.

I've always been interested in the ACW, and would dearly love to visit some of the battlefields of the ACW, especially Gettysburg (Little Round Top), where the 20th Maine defended their position against the rebs, and the clump of trees where the great General Winfield S Hancock (Hancock the superb), did some brilliant work before being wounded, however, I am not a millionaire, so I will have to make do with watching the DVD LOL!

Hope you are well mate. Salute

Hiya Martin, yes i'm good, all the better after hearing from you mate!
i downloaded the ACW by Ken Burn's who i think is the very best docu-
mentary maker to come out of america, Joshua Chamberlain and the
20th are covered in detail.. my pocket's are shallow as well, which has
alway's been the case, but iv'e been blessed in other area's. my middle
son blake has persuaded me to go to liverpool tomorrow night to see
his favourite band. now.. i rarely go out gigging it was over twenty years
since i last saw a live band.. but i have really got into this band, they take
the old public service broadcast informations film's and set them to music.
it's a real mixture of history and contemporary music.. so we have booked
a hotel and i hope to have a good time. i was 64 yesterday and i'm wonder-
ing if it might do my head in a bit. lol. here is a youtube link of them that
you might relate to.

As an afterthought if anybody of any age would like to hear some ' intelligent '
music completely different to today's pap. might i introduce.. Public Service
Broadcasting.. a mainly two piece ensemble who have secured the blessing
of the BFI. to use their stock of public information film's and then weave
their sound around it, with title's such as Spitfire.. Everest, Go, and many
more. all with an historical content, they are a perfect antidote to this world
which at the moment seems to be spiralling out of control. all to be found on
youtube. xhosa

Many thank's for the birthday wishes, i was really unsure about going to the gig
with my son, even after i had booked hotel rooms and advanced train tkt's two
month's in advance, my son came over in a cab the lunchtime in order to get a
two'ish a clock train, and i said to my wife i'm not sure that i fancy this, if she
would have said.. don't go then.. she did'nt.. so i went. what an incredible time
i had.. my son and friend's were first in line when my cab arrived, 10 minutes
later i'm stood right at the front in what seem like an empty hall, 20 min's later
i turned round and the gaff was packed.. i honestly had the best time in my life.
when the band kicked off we were so close i could have reached out and touched
them. the bass speaker right in front of me scared me half to death when it kicked
in, my jean's were ruffling and undulating like they were being blown in a minor
gale. i got used to that after about three tune's and totally got into it. great crowd
of all ages. there is some amature footage on you tube. first time iv'e been out to
a gig for twenty or thirty year's, the last band i saw live was either ub40 or kool &
the gang.. i'm so glad i went, i made some good memory's.
