Slightly off subject, but does anyone know if the following book ever got published:

THE BRITISH ARMY ZULU WAR TO BOER WAR, By Ian Knight. Not sure who the publisher would have been, but 1999 is the yr of [?] publication.

Thoughts any one?

Wrong Ian, it was Ian Castle in Brasseys uniform series. To my knowledge no it wasn't published. There a review on Amazon, which says words to the effect - good book, shame it is not published.

I've done those photo's for you of your former workplace.

You're both correct gentlemen, it was co-written by Ian Knight and Ian Castle and illustrated by Richard Hook. I made enquiries about this book back in 2001/2002, I contacted both Ian Knight and Brassey's and was informed that the book was never published and that Brassey's had no plans to publish it!!!! What a shame.

Thank you for your replies. It is a shame that Ians Knight & Castle didn't get to publish it. May be some else would like a crack. I wonder what John Young is doing this summer....?

I think I'll still be working on the corrections for the Rattray/Greaves Guidebook this summer.
