Perry Miniatures Sudan War Correspondents

Melton Prior stands on a rocky outcrop to get a good view of the action some distance away and immediately begins to sketch. No doubt this illustration too will be reproduced in the Illustrated London News. Frederic Villiers, his mount giving him an excellent view of the action, makes notes and brief sketches in his notebook ready for his next article for the Graphic. Scotsman, Bennet Burleigh, correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, watches on, no doubt mentally composing the next chapter of his planned book on the campaign.
