Antique Photographs of Sudan VC Recipients

Postby Mark » 03 Nov 2015 11:57

Dear All

I am on the hunt for some original photographs/prints of the following VC recipients for the Battle of Omdurman:

Thomas Byrne, 21st Lancers
Raymond De Montmorency, 21st Lancers
Paul Kenna, 21st Lancers
Nevill Smyth, 2nd Dragoon Guards


eBay normally proves to be a good source of such images, but at the time of posting nothing appears to be available.

The images must be antique and not modern reproductions.

If anyone comes across any of the above I would appreciate it if you could let me know.

There are original prints/pages taken from the Army and Navy Illustrated of the first and third names on your list
on ebay at the moment if this helps.
