In the film Zulu Dawn - Norris-Newman and Lord C seem to a prickly relationship - there's one of two interchanges between them that imply friction.

Does anyone know of how Lord C got on with the 'press corps' (my terminology)?

Were the newspaper despatches censored or approved before sending or was it still the era of the 'free press'?

Did he (Lord C) see them as a necessary evil of the modern world and try to use them to his advantage?

Hi Sime
Reading Editions of ' The Penny Illustrated Paper ' throughout 1879 , Archibald Forbes is often critical of LC and his '' Shilly Shally ' nature of the Campaign ! .

Forbes did write a piece on Lord Chelmsford and the Zulu War.. Arthur Harness published a response to the article in which he defends Chelmsford.

Far more critical of the press was Chelmsford’s successor, Garnet Wolseley, who entered into a war of words with William Howard Russell.

At the same time “Bobs” was doing everything he could to thwart the special correspondents with his forces In Afghanistan.

I have some satirical illustrations about such things.
