PHOTO'S OF 8TH FRONTIER WAR

Postby peterwhitla » 11 Jan 2015 13:52

I am currently researching the 8th Frontier War and have failed to discover any contemporary photographs. There are a few very interesting surviving pics of Xhosa chiefs taken during their imprisonment on Robben Island, but almost nothing that I can find of the British officers or men, or of the key places.

If anyone can point me in the right direction to track down any photos this will be hugely appreciated.

I think Mike Snook is currently doing some work on the Cape Frontier Wars, perhaps he might know?

Indeed I am. For what reason are you researching this field Peter?

That's done and dusted offline, with the sad news, for everybody else's benefit, that there aren't any such photos. Not as far as I know anyway.

Hi again Mike,

Can you help me with a very short inquiry. Despite Googling from various angles, I cannot find the sea time between England and Capetown during the early 1850's. Do you by chance have that information at the top of your head? I imagine it's around a month but do not really know for sure.

Thanks again for your patient kindness.

All good wishes,

Peter
