PostSubject: Studies in the Zulu War 1879 Volume V   Thu Nov 08, 2018 10:31 am

This is just to let you know that

STUDIES IN THE ZULU WAR 1879: vol. V

will be available from Brecon Museum from Monday 19th November.
Copies may be pre-ordered (either by phone or e-mail from Stephen Farish on 01874 613310 / [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).

Essays included are:

Memento Mori Julian Whybra

The Symons Account: Lord Chelmsford’s Reconnaissance
& the Defence of Rorke’s Drift Julian Whybra

An Account of Isandhlwana by Trooper
Walter Granger, Natal Carbineers Frédéric Bomy and Julian Whybra

Regards,

Julian Whybra

Description of each:

“Memento Mori concerns four short anecdotes to do with the battle of Isandhlwana which have wholly or partially never been in the public domain. It is important that they and their provenance should be so. Whilst two of the four are affecting at a personal, emotional level the other two are important at a strategic level for a thorough understanding of how the battle unfolded.”

“The Symons Account at Brecon has never before been made available to the public, transcribed in full, or published in its entirety. Captain William Penn Symons 2/24th accompanied Lord Chelmsford’s Reconnaissance of 21st-22nd January 1879. His two journals - a draft with deletions and insertions and a finished version with annotations - contain a wealth of information shedding light and controversy on Isandhlwana and Rorke’s Drift. It was compiled February-April 1879 from the author’s own experiences and from interviews with surviving participants. Too long to include in one volume, it is divided in half, as in the original manuscript. This volume contains the first part describing Chelmsford’s Reconnaissance and the Defence of Rorke’s Drift. The second part describing the battle of Isandhlwana on 22nd January will appear in Volume VI.”

“The recently-discovered account of Isandhlwana by Trooper Granger of the Natal Carbineers leads the reader into formerly-uncharted territory, some of it highly controversial. It sheds light on to the movements of the mounted men at Isandhlwana during the camp alarms and subsequent attack, the ad hoc nature of the defence of the camp, details of the makeshift defence in front of the 1/24th’s tents, the nature of the successful Zulu encirclement of the camp, incidents during the flight to the Buffalo, the fate of the 24th Regiment’s ‘child-soldiers’ and the possibility of torture, the subsequent discovery, identification and burial of the bodies of Natal Carbineeers and their location on the battlefield, and much else besides.”

As usual, the devil will be in the detail and there is of course a wealth of new snippets of information and previously-unseen letters accounts included to back up the findings.

Just heard back from Stephen Farrish at Royal Welsh. Apparently they cannot take pre-orders - must wait for it to come up on their website.

Apologies. I was told to forewarn a week before they would be available at the museum.
