India Old Tuck's Oilette Postcard Shah Najaf Mosque, Tomb of Ghazi-un-din Haidar

Vintage British Indian Colour Art Artist Drawn Tuck's Oilette Old Postcard. India, Shah Najaf Mosque, Lucknow. Garden Gardens. Shah Najaf is the tomb of Ghazi-ud-din Haidar Khan, surmounted by a dome and surrounded by walls of such immense thickness that the heavy guns of the Naval Brigade were unable to make any impression on them. This was a severe check to the British advance in November 1857, until some soldiers of the 93rd managed to scramble over part of the broken wall at the back. Sergeant Paton received the Victoria Cross for the part he took in this escalade.
