beautifull watercolours !!!look like cadogan's (i ve got the book!!)regardspaco
In case our French friends such as paco, Patrick and André do not realise it, the Rifle Brigade (now the Rifles) had/has a similar ethos and élite reputation to the chasseurs à pied. Henry Clifford was one of their brightest stars; clearly a fine officer and a very brave man, as well as a most accomplished watercolourist. I recommend “Henry Clifford VC – his letters and sketches from the Crimea” (London, Michael Joseph, 1956). Sadly the watercolours reproduced in this book are nearly all in black and white. A new, full colour, edition of all his Crimean watercolours would be very welcome.
