Soldiers of the Queen (SOTQ): Issue 168

The latest copy of SOTQ (Soldiers of the Queen, the quarterly journal of the Victorian Military Society) was delivered whilst I was on my most recent cruise, and I have only just had a chance to read it.

The articles included in this issue are:
  • Avenging the Martyr: Markham's Raid on Nukapu by Frank Jastrzembski
  • Tirah Campaign Veterans: Post-Discharge Experiences by John Sly
  • 'A very disastrous engagement': The Battle of iSandlwana re-enactment 2017 by Tim Rose
  • Private Patrick Walsh, 45th Regiment, and his badge by Brett Hendey
  • 'Florence Nightingale before the Royal Commission': Some observations on the essay by David Snape by Mike Hinton
  • Book Reviews
  • About the VMS
Yet another issue that was full of interesting and somewhat different articles. I found the article about the lives of the Torah Campaign Veterans particularly interesting because I have some idea about the amount of genealogical research such an article must have taken.

Inside the journal was a flyer advertising the VMS Seminar that will be held in May 2018. It is entitled 'Invasions Scares and the 'Battle of Dorking' and I must admit that I am sorely tempted to go if it is at all possible.
