Post Office Rifles, Egypt, 1882.

Egypt, 1882. Perry plastics from the AZW set with heads from the Afghan War set. The 24th Middlesex Volunteer Rifles (Post Office Rifles) sent just over 100 men to Egypt with Wolseley. They ran the Army Post Office and provided a telegraph detachment. reflect their role in communications, I painted some up standing around a heliograph. The very dark blue palette does not take the varnish well....

Sudan: Heavy Camel Regiment (dismounted).
