Sketch of Cpl Schiess VC-I dont know if it is contemporary or modern and is probably copyrigthed
|23rd April 2005||John Young|
The sketch appeared in the late David Harvey's book 'Monuments to Courage', sadly it does not depict Corporal Schiess. The drawing was based on an erroneously captioned photograph in Canon Lummis' work 'Padre George Smith of Rorke's Drift'.
The matter has been previously discussed.
