Greetings - my apologies for joining the forum...and posting a question straight off the bat!
I'm an amateur model-maker, and currently gearing up to start work on a small diorama relating to the Battle of Maiwand.
My query relates to Captain John Slade, who took command of the E/B RHA during the retreat from Maiwand. I believe he earned the moniker, 'Johnnie of Maiwand' at some point.
Back in 2009, some memorabilia that had belonged to Slade was put up for auction in the UK. My understanding is that some of the items made their way back to family members (which was nice to hear). One of the items up for auction was a typed account of the battle written by Slade. The only image I could locate of the account was the following (I'm sorry it's so small...but the auction website where I located it wouldn't allow me to view/save it in a larger format).
My question - has Captain Slade's typed account ever been made public - or published in any form? For a number of reasons, I'm quite keen to have a read of it.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
