Who actually looks after the Battlefield at Isandlwana? Is it a body of people similar to English Heritage? And how is this funded. I have looked at loads of photos and the area is always looks in prestige condition. Are Donations send from the UK. ???

I believe there is some funding from the UK but not nearly enough. The only thing the British give is there opinions on how it should be done. Most of which is un-wanted criticism on how AMAFA conduct their affairs. The British could start by giving back the artefacts that rightly belong back in South Africa.

Goggle (Compton) He was tracked down by Konigkramer and Marshall in the UK. They took photographed the stolen artefacts. This was brought to the attention of the British Police who like always took no action. As for the artefacts in question there are no photographs as far as I know available.

But it’s my opinion that anything removed from the Battlefields should remain in the country where the Battle took place. We all say we have respect for the soldiers and Warriors that fell during the war 1879. So let’s leave the memories of the days there.

I don’t agree.
There were British Soldiers there as well as Zulus;

Anything British should by rights be returned to England. Zulu Shields Spears are the trophies of war brought back by the victors.

24th. You make it sound like the British were the only victors. What about the Colonial Soldiers who fought and died on the side of the British. Do you really think the British won the war on their own?

24th "What the hell do you mean "cowardly blacks?" They died on your side, didn't they? And who the hell do you think is coming to wipe out your little command? The Grenadier Guards? "
