Desperate escape, Gun carriage, Zulu wars
The most humiliating defeat in the history of the British Army, and that includes American war of independence, and more recently Arnhem. Military Command totally underestimated the strength, the organisation and the strategy of the Zulu warriors. WIth a sophisticated'badging' of tribal goupings identified by the colour of their shields, a Royal decree to separate young unmarried lads from their older married companions, the famous horn pincer movement, and cunning ambushes, Britains high handed despisal of this clever nation cost them dear. William Britains skilled sculptors have modelled a brilliant diorama showing an artillery gun carriage making a desperate escape, complete with Zulu warriors attacking. A very lively scene, beautifully executed in matte finish, the quality of. Workmanship just continues to improve at Britains. Artistically painted by skillfull artists in matte finish, this grade is to the same standard as their Museum grade pieces- and with Britains policy of retiring their pieces to limit numbers produced, this set, already a collectors ite, will earn a well deserved place of distinction in any collection of this period of British colonialism.
