The Attack Commences


Rear view of Mahdi command stand. These were painted by Scott who has a very fine collection of colonial figures and if I'm not mistaken, Scott would have painted the flag by hand. The Commander of this flank was "Wait for me fellows" Russ.

This bunch commanded by yours truly, Robert otherwise known as "Where's me cuppa Tea" Oh! thats me bottom right hand corner, running after the bunch who has run off with the Kettle!

British Cavalry about to contact group of Mahdi. The cotton represents the unit as fired by the way they missed.

Mahdi on the British left flank, Note, the small dice representing the number of hits. This group actually came into contact with a British company pushing them back, causing them to take refuge in one houses in the village.
