However, in relation to yours and Bob's identification of those items at NAM, we may have to wait till next year when the musuem reopens its doors. It is possible to access some textual items via temporary outstations in London and Hertfordshire but I suspect these two, especially the Crealock album may not be available for examination outside the museum premises.

I have already viewed some items at the London History Centre, so I can see what the possibilities are. Given the date, I don't imagine an enquiry will bear much fruit before the New Year but I shall have a go.



Sounds great !! I would be VERY interested in what you could report about the Crealock sketches, or the photograph. I am putting together an Indian Mutiny reenacting impression of the 93rd, and others in our group are putting together impressions of other units in that conflict. I am sure that you would have happier hunting AFTER the NAM reopens...

Jf,

I’m more confused than usual.

I could see them then; I can see them now.

Mike Snook saw them then. Bobs can see them now.

But you can’t see them on your screen?

I’ve sent them to you separately.

Regards,
Peter

My apologies, Peter. I misidentfied Bob's first post, as the failure of the quotation function had obscured that this was a reference to your previous posts, and I took it to be from you with a new nugget..

alles klaar now.

Thanks again

JF

Chaps

As far as I am aware most, if not all, of Crealock's stuff is from Sir Hugh Rose's Central India Campaign. I have seen quite a few but recollect them as mostly distant views of marching columns, with the troops clad in Home Service Dress - lots of red and blue.

As ever

Well, Mike, the datalogue entry does refer to the 2nd China War as well, so there may be something to chew on.

Is this sketch by Crealock?

I think so, jf, looks like his style. Haven't seen that one before though. China and interesting.

Of course, I don't seem to have a note of where I found this picture, and google image search won't play... pshaw.

jf, Looking at it again I have a feeling I have seen it before...it's not in one of those British Army on Campaign set of 3 or 4 done by Osprey perhaps? Didn't Michael Barthorp write them. I have definitely seen an Osprey colour plate of a man dressed like that carrying his shoes in his hand. Could be based on that sketch I'm guessing. And for some reason Queen's Regiment is coming into my mind. If you don't have them (I'm thinking you probably do), I can search 'em out here and check.

Thanks Mike. Foundry have done a model of that figure too. I'll check it out once normal service resumes.
'Compliments,' &c
