Abyssinia Campaign - Seminar Day
Bankfield Museum, Halifax, HX3 6HG
Please see the link below for details of the forthcoming seminar on the Abyssinian campaign.
It was possibly the most successful campaign ever conducted by the British Army. The mission was accomplished, with only 5 fatalities, one accidental (Col R A Dunn, CO 33rd Foot) and four others to accident or disease. In addition the logistics planning was first rate, unlike the Crimean War. On top of that, two 'Dukes' were awarded the Victoria Cross.
