Hi Guys
The monument shown is remakably similar to one of the monuments at RD. In fact it could have been a fore runner of the present day monument. The present monument is in "Then and Now".
Ive looked over my own photos and its definitly not there now.
So maybe it was originally at RD and has been replaced by the newer one.

It is a photo of the central headstone where most of the Zulu casualties were buried at Rorke's Drift. The site had remained in pristine condition until about 18 months ago, when Amafa/Heritage KwaZulu-Natal had stones packed onto the mass grave and they were painted white. There are three very interesting stone sculptures on the north wall inside the enclosure. Three steel crosses (similar to those donated by the Guild of Loyal Women during the Anglo-Boer War period) were erected inside the enclosure as well until I lodged an objection and I see they have been removed.
This is, of course, the main Zulu cemetery; the other is located north of the battlefield and is clearly identified by a marker. For some odd reason, very few visitors to Rorke's Drift visit the main Zulu cemetery. I'll send Admin a photograph of it. In my humble opinion, the mass grave should have been left as it was; there were some poplar tree saplings growing in the enclosed area and I reported it to the authorities, who apparently poinoned them and packed the grave with stones (and the crosses).
Regards, Ken

Post on behalf of Ken Gillings.

"Photo's of the headstone in the main Zulu mass grave in the section headed ‘Links to Photos on the Zulu War’."

"Here are a couple of photos of that mass grave. They were, of course, taken before Amafa/Heritage packed stones inside the perimeter and painted them white"

The walled in enclosure is the site before Amafa/Heritage introduced the rocks. The modern photograph that was posted showing the headstone is in fact the headstone in the photo of the walled-in section. The entire walled in section has now been destroyed by having all those white stones laid!
