On my way to Brecon for the Regional Meeting I had time to visit Brecon Cathedral where the colours or those that were left of them of the gallant 24th of Foot were laid up after the battle of Isandlawana in 1879. This the Zulu War and was a great deal more frightening than Afghanistan as 1450 soldiers were slaughtered in 45 minutes!! This picture are the remains of the original flowers which bedecked the surviving Queens Colour and are preserved in the cathedral.
