Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr. Melvill.

BRITISH / COLONIAL UNIFORMS. WEAPONS.

Most of the British soldiers serving in the battles against the Zulus in South Africa carried Martini-Henry rifles. Each Martini-Henry rifle was equipped with the ability to hold a bayonet While the Martini-Henry rifle was the standard issue for the British soldiers in South Africa, some held alternate rifles. Some soldiers carried the older issue Westley Richards Carbine rifle, Just some of the weapons used by the British.

GENEALOGY

Genealogical research is a complex process that uses historical records and sometimes genetic analysis to demonstrate kinship. Reliable conclusions are based on the quality of sources, ideally original records, the information within those sources, ideally primary or firsthand information, and the evidence that can be drawn, directly or indirectly, from that information. In many instances, genealogists must skillfully assemble indirect or circumstantial evidence to build a case for identity and kinship. All evidence and conclusions, together with the documentation that supports them, is then assembled to create a cohesive genealogy or family history here you may find information relating to relations of those that took part in the Zulu Wars of 1879.

MARTINI NEIL. “WE SLOSHED YOU WITH MARTINI’S.. BUT THAT ‘AINT ‘ ARDLY FAIR”

The changes in military rifle taking place all over Europe during that second half of 19th Century took had left military planners both in Great Britain and Europe in a dilemma. The introduction of the Dreyse Pattern 1868 Needle fire rifle had set about the accelerated development of the breech loading rifle as a weapon of choice all in industrialised countries. The trend too, for smaller projectiles with a great ballistic accuracy and velocity were beginning to become the requirement. A Study of the Martini Henry Rifle of the Zulu Wars. By Neil Aspinshaw.
