Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

PostSubject: Archibald Forbes   Sun Apr 11, 2010 8:52 pm

In a reference book, I have come across a copy of a poster advertising a talk by Archibald Forbes (dated Jan 1880) on the Zulu war as an 'eye witness in Zululand' , including an account of the finding of the body of the Prince Imperial and the battle of Ulundi. I understand he was a war correspondent with the the Daily News.

Does anyone know where he was during the AZW - was he with Chelmsford throughout the war?

Thanks CTSG. The accounts of Forbes I have read seem to relate to the latter part of the war - presumably he arrived well after the first invasion. Correspondents such as Norris Newman seem to have been there from the start.
