Soldiers of the Queen - Issue 171 (Summer 2018)

We have David Howell on Sir Harry Burnett Lumsden, whose long service in India took in both the First and Second Anglo-Sikh Wars, the Indian Mutiny and numerous campaigns on the North West Frontier.

 

Mike Hinton gives us a fascinating account of the impact of an outbreak of cholera at Scutari military hospital during the Crimean War, while Andrew Winrow takes us on a fascinating visit to the modest house in Stokesley, yorkshire, that provided the armoury for the 9th North Riding Rifle Volunteers, and a new SOTQ contributor, Wendell Schollander, gives his observations on the uniforms of Scottish regiments, both Highland and Lowland, in the late-Victorian and Edwardian period.

 

Rodney Atwood analyses the tactics that enabled Sir Redvers Buller to redeem his reputation as a commander after initial failures in the early stages of the Second Anglo-Boer War, and, finally, we have a range of book reviews by Roger Stearn and Dan Allen.
