By Colum O'Rourke
Thanks for all the help from everyone lately.Where was Mister Shepherd from and what year was he born in? Hard man to find info on

There is nothing hard about finding information on Peter Shepherd, his biography, along with his photograph, appears on pages 279-280 of MacKinnon & Shadbolt's 'South African Campaign of 1879', first published 1880, reprinted in 1882 with minor amendments and the addition of one photograph. There is a 1995 edition available; ISBN 1-85367-203-3, published by Greenhill Books.
Nothing is too hard if you know where to look, even in Ireland - try starting with your local newspapers

The internet is a wonderful tool......

...and this happens to be part of the internet.However, books are the first line of defence (and offence) in knowledge and you will find a wonderful resource guide in the 'books' and 'book reviews' section of this forum. (If you haven't reached your dead line yet!)
