ZULU WAR 1879 Discussion & Reference Forum ( A Small Victorian War in 1879)

From Edward Evans of Llawrglyn, near Llanidloes who escaped from Isandula to his mother and brother. You know nothing of the horrors of war and if I was to write from now till Christmas, I could never explain half what I have seen or how I was saved.

hi all.
I have no idea how to scan on a computer , if anyone has " The Noble 24th " There is a list on page 379.
It isnt complete but it is a good start. Also in " Englands Sons by J. Whybra , Gives more names of survivors
that arent listed in Noble 24th.
cheers 90th.

PostSubject: Survivor/ancestor from Isandlwana....   Mon Mar 29, 2010 4:01 am

This is a great forum, and I'm pleased to name this gentleman:

Trooper Robert J. M. Kincade


We've only recently learned that this is one of our ancestor's, and he survived the Battle at Isandlwana.

Wonderful idea by the way, NOW, if only my family and I could find a picture of this gentleman....we're still researching!

I have a photo of A.W. Materson taken in 1880 in his full Carbineer undress blues but I have no idea how to load it. Directions please. He was awarded 1878-79 medal with clasp.

Hi Dave, I have most, if not all the Osprey books on the Zulu War so between them & searching on the net I can find most uniform colours for the AZW.
They may not be spot on but pretty near to what they would have looked like.

Happy you like it Izabel,

To think it may be used in the NC museum makes it more than worthwhile

I think the blue may be a little to light on the other picture so here's #2 with the blue more like how it should be I think Wink
