The Zulu War
Fall 2015 Catalog
Summer 2015 Catalog
The aftermath of any battle finds a scarred
landscape, the debris of war and the shattered
remains of combatants. The ferocious battle that
took place at Rorke's Drift on 22nd and 23rd of
January 1879 was no exception...
WBritain also continue to add to their popular Anglo-Zulu War range with much needed representations of the mounted forces used during this conflict. Their first release includes members of the Natal Carbineers, one of the oldest Colonial units serving in this conflict. The Carbineers had been established in 1855 with the headquarters at Pietermaritzburg, the Colonial capital. To accompany them on patrol is their first 17th Lancer.
The 17th was sent to Natal Colony for the Zulu War and was used for scouting and screening the army. Later 4 July 1879, the 17th fought at the Battle of Ulundi under Sir Drury Curzon Drury-Lowe and played an important part in the defeat of the Zulu forces there. Look for more mounted units to be added to this collection soon.
