£24.99

A good account, published in hardback, of the Unyoro Campaign in Central Africa (Uganda) 1893-94, written by the force commander & Acting-Governor Sir Henry Colvile,Grenadier Gds. The award of the scarce “Central Africa Medal” was extended to the cover service during this Expedition.
Campaign accounts by “The Man on the Ground” are always useful especially so when a British campaign medal was awarded for the action.
On the 13 Apr 1894 the Daily Telegraph reported “The forces under Colonel Colville have defeated Kabarrega, King of Unyoro, a slave territory of East Africa, on the east side of Lake Albert Nyanzas.”
