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.

Can anyone help? I have seen it on the forum. But cannot find it again. It was a discussion that included a post about a Soldier that was presumably tortured to death by the Zulu.

hi impi .
Not sure where it is but I think I may have posted a reply , of course you are referring to Trpr Rubenheim who was
killed in a skirmish the day before Ulundi when the zulus almost ambushed Buller and his mounted force .
I think by memory another couple were also killed in the same action . This same action resulted in Sgt . Edmund
O' Toole being awarded the VC for helping Lord Beresford save Sgt Fitzmaurice , Fitzmaurice was lifted up onto
Beresford's horse by Beresford while O'Toole held back the zulus , O'Toole had to hand up his weapon and help
Fitzmaurice stay in the saddle as Fitzmaurice was a little stunned after his fall , with the zulus gaining on them there
wasnt an armed man between O'Toole and the enemy.
cheers 90th.

Hi impi

This is a good illustration of the only European prisoner of war taken by the Zulus during the campaign.
