ECCOSAIS 92nd Regiment d?Infanterie

ECCOSAIS 92nd Regiment d?Infanterie. Colour etching by an unknown artist, 1815 (c). The 92nd (Gordon) Highlanders served in Egypt, the Low Countries, Portugal, Spain and Waterloo. During the Napoleonic Wars eight Scottish infantry regiments were designated Highland Regiments, they were well known for their ferocity on the battlefield and their good behaviour off it. As the war went on some abandoned their highland dress since the unwillingness of non-Highlanders to wear a kilt had made it difficult for them to attract recruits. From a collection of ten engravings of the British Army in Paris entitled ?Costumes Millitaires?, published by Genty, Paris, 1815 (c). Date: circa 1815

The Battle of Majuba Hill

The Transvaal War: the Battle of Majuba Hill. Majuba Hill was the main battle of the First Boer War, and one which the British resoundingly lost. The officer to the left with binoculars is General Sir George Colley, commanding officer, who was killed by Boer marksmen; to facilitate his ascent of the hill (says the ILN), he took off his boots and during the fighting wore only socks and slippers; the officer in the foreground to whom the doctor is offering a flask is Major L C Singleton of the 92nd Gordon Highlanders who died of his wounds. The figure on the extreme left is J A Cameron, Special Correspondent of the Standard. Date: 27th February 1881

Soldiers of the 72nd (Duke of Albany?s Own Highlanders) Reg

Photograph: Soldiers of the 72nd (Duke of Albany?s Own Highlanders) Regiment, 1879. From an album of 60 photographs by John Burke, 1878-1880. Associated with Maj Gen Frederick Sleigh Roberts, 2nd Afghan War (1878-1880). Soldiers of the 72nd (Duke of Albany?s Own Highlanders) Regiment in Afghanistan exhibit the range of signalling devices available before the advent of either the field telephone or radio. Flags enabled the relaying of messages by semaphore. The Mance heliograph, a small mirror mounted on a tripod, worked by reflecting sunlight in order to flash messages in Morse code: on 22 April 1880, news of the Battle of Ahmed Khel was relayed by heliograph to another British column 50 miles away. At night, when there was no sunlight, the shuttered Aldis lamp was used to flash signals instead. Finally, the signallers? telescope enabled them to see long distance messages more easily. Date: 1879
