Too true, many people turn their noses up at them, but as you say, there are a number that are very collectable. There are a small number of other regiments in the DNW auction that also had some trouble at this skirmish.
Well, as I understand it, on the day in question, the bugle was sounded and the charge was made, don't forget that their blood was up and "jonny boer" had no answer to the bayonet!
Kind regards Frank

We should start a new thread to remember all those engagements that ended in a bayonet charge. There were not that many?
