""British American Tobacco Co. Petersburg, Virginia. 'Dying to save the Queens colours.' an episode in the battle of Insandlwhana, the death of lieutenants Melville and Coghill. 24th Regiment."
This original vintage tobacco label shows a scene from the Anglo-Zulu War. Meant to portray the British soldiers as brave, this is very typical of the late 19th century.
Year: c. 1880
