The print was produced by Ian Knight. Check the website for availability. £42.50 unframed inc. P&P.

Interestingly, the memorial print was issued in more than one version. I have an original copy which differs somewhat from the copy which was reprinted by Ian Knight. There are differences in both the casualty list and the text recounting the battle.

thanks Alan already got a copy. to clarify, in what circumstances was the print published, who commisioned it, when was it presented [or ] associated to the regiment, is the print still avaiable in the site shop the remains of the original run, has there been a rerun....mr Fine, you say the print was issued in more than one version,[issued by whom please] i am more than interested in your differing print, is there any way i can view an image of it...or even the different text ..regards
