A scene from the Eighth Xhosa War (1850-3), with a column of soldiers attacked by Xhosa spearmen in a narrow ravine. Lieut. Colonel John Fordyce had realised that the regiment's usual scarlet tunics were not suited to African warfare, so issued his men with the olive canvas jackets shown here. He was killed at Waterkloof a month later. The war is now best known for the wreck of HMS Birkenhead in 1852. The new recruits, many destined for the 74th, stood in rank as the women and children escaped in lifeboats, commemorated in the ''Birkenhead drill'' of Rudyard Kipling's poem.
