On offer is a super relic of 19th Century British militaria being the original manuscript diary of Charles Black, dated 1870 but having notes ranging from 1864 through 1870, detailing the expenses and duties of his work as a Farrier Sergeant. Beautifully executed with weekly reports specific to his work in the Punjab district with particular note is a list of successful horse castrations performed by the Farrier for various military persons and notables detailing the date, horse's name, age, success of operation and then the signature of the military personnel who had charge of the horse. This is a very interesting insight into this particular military life. Farrier sergeants were found in both artillery and cavalry regiments. They were generally classed as senior sergeants and paid accordingly. Their duties included inspecting the horses of their troops every morning, and reporting any infectious disease immediately to their commanding officer and to the veterinary surgeon. A farrier sergeant was required to attend any British cavalry detachment of 50 or more under. They are in service in the modern forces to this day. Black is interesting as this prominent Englishman who eventually settled in Toronto, Canada and whose descendants would become the founders of the Black's Photography franchise. BIO NOTES: Charles Black [1836-1895] was born in the parish of Barrow-upon-Soar, the son of John Black, a builder. Charles enlisted in the Royal Horse Artillery in 1851 seeing active service in Bengal in 1854, Crimea in 1855 and also in the 1885 Northwest rebellion as Farrier Sergeant of the Canadian Governor-General's Body Guards under the command of Colonel G.T. Denison. Included are 2 reproduction photographs in which Black is portrayed. Some pages have been removed from the centre of the book but the book is complete. Overall G+.. Category:19th Century Ephemera

CIVIL WAR - VIRGINIA holograph letter written by Union solider from New Market, VA., 4 pages, unsigned so possibly incomplete but interesting content. To his father; "...I said I did not know whether I should ride my horse or get sent through by rail as far as Winchester / I saddled my horse and rode out about two miles / went to captain to see if I would be sent my rail - he said no because bridge was gone / railroad bridge at the ferry across the Potomac was washed away by heavy rain / must ride my horse or stay behind / packed my duds & mounted my horse in a drizling rain / passed through Charlestown where John Brown was tried and hung 8 miles from the Ferry & stopped about 4 miles from Berryville / took quarters in old deserted tavern with Marve / started for Woodstock where regiment was / orders - no women companions / took off my overcoat and rolled it and strapped my saber and pitol, haversack & canteen to saddle, this lightened my load / we did not pass near enough to the field of battle this side of Winchester to get sight of it though I saw where the skirmishing commenced on the road & our men drove them back onto the hill about a mile and a half before they made a stand behind the stone wall / some trees by the road were all picked up by rebel bullets and they probably sheltered some of our men and an old house was burnet down by a shell from our guns that sheltered them." Very good decscriptive letter.. Category:19th Century Ephemera
