Picture of Capt. George V.A. Wardell colourized

Captain George V.A. Wardell was a member of the British Army during the Victorian Age. He died on Janurary 22nd, 1879 in the Battle of Isandlwana short after the outbreak of war where he commanded H company of 1/24th Regiment of Foot (2nd Warwickshire). Besides him, almost the whole British force was wiped out.

The photo was taken in 1877. Enhancement and colourization by me.
