HC Deb 02 August 1890 vol 347 cc1653-705

Extract from Mr Story’s speech.

“I know a case of a man who served in that unhappy Zulu War, and in the fight at Isandula, where one of our regiments was cut up. This poor man was not killed in the action; he escaped and was sent to Port Elizabeth, where he died of exhaustion induced by the hardships he endured in the campaign.”

hi littlehand .
I'm certain its not one of the lucky 5 Imperial officers who escaped Isandlwana , Smith- Dorrien , Cochrane , Essex ,
Gardiner or Curling , maybe a Colonial Officer or possibly a family friend or acquaintance that was in the Ranks .
cheers 90th.

Hi All,
I think this story is all mixed up and relates to Dalton VC of Rorke's Drift fame who dies and is buried in Port Elizabeth.
