British 91st Highlander (Anglo-Zulu War)
The Anglo-Zulu War was fought in 1879 between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom. The war is notable for several particularly bloody battles, including an opening victory of the Zulu at the Battle of Isandlwana, followed by the successful defense of Rorke's Drift by a small British force from attack by a large Zulu force. The British eventually won the war, ending Zulu dominance of the region.
The 91st (Princess Loiuse's Argyllshire) Highlanders wore the scarlet frock with trews. The 91st were shown to wear black pouches of a slightly older design rather than the buff ammunition pouches. The equipment is worn in marching order.
