Descripción

The memorial item, which seems to date from about 1890 and is currently in its contemporary glaxed maple frame with silvered inner slip, consists of a centrally mounted photographic copy of a drawing of the famous stand. This is mounted on a hand written card titled above the picture and below giving the extract from Lt Gen Primrose's despatch: "History does not afford any greater or purer instance of gallantry and devotion to Queen and country than that displayed by the 66th Berkshire Regiment on the 27th July 1880." On the card beneath is tipped a newspaper cutting concerning the Maiwand memorial in Forbury Park in Reading, which takes the form of a huge lion and was erected in 1886. Between the two newspaper extracts are two pieces of contemporary medal ribbon, the upper one of watered silk in the colours of the First Afghan War 1839-42 and the other from the the Second Afghan War. An attractive late Victorian survival [the framing is of the period, not just in the style] special packing or delivery is required for this item because of the glass. Size: 16 x 13ins excludin the Frame. N° de ref. de la librería 007913
