I received an e-mail from a forum member asking me to identify the source of an engraving that has appeared on Facebook? - Whatever that is?

This is the engraving in question, apparently it is puzzling a few folk.

The British Troops crossing the Tugela

In the spirit of co-operation, if someone from this forum is also part of the Facebook group could they please pass on the following source of the engraving:

Hi John,

Just posted the photo and credited you.

This is also puzzling them/me The (Olivier Pichat) painting of the Prince Imperial in Zululand - it supposedly very accurate - down to the Prince's brown boots and escort uniforms but Carey is in a red tunic - do you know if that was right on the day?

Sime,

Thanks for doing that.

It is feasible for Jahleel Carey to have been in scarlet, he might have scrounged it from somewhere. Don’t forget he had lost all of his own kit with the loss of the Clyde, and would have had to rely replacement kit acquired by various means.

Thanks again.
