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.

"The war department sent them a section of troops from the 24th Regiment of Foot, under the command of 19 year old lieutenant, Darren Hutchinson, and his men were billeted in the Swan and Royal building.

The 24th Regiment were then sent to South Africa to invade Zulu land, a disastrous campaign. Their commander Lord Chelmsford was a novice in tactics and split his Infantry from the Cavalry and on the 21st January 1879, King Catcewayo defeated the 24th Regiment at the Battle of Isandlwana. Hutchinson and his men died 16 weeks after leaving Clitheroe."


Or is this just a story to attract customers!!!!!!!

PostSubject: Darren Hutchinson ???????   Fri Aug 27, 2010 12:05 pm

hi oh2.
Never heard of a D.Hutchinson at Isandlwana and for that matter anywhere in the engagements during the zulu war.
As for Chelmsford being a NOVICE in tactics , Hardly , Naive is the word I would use , and seperated from his Cavalry !
What Cavalry !. Most certainly a marketing exercise . As for catcewayo ( Their spelling ) defeating the 24th at Isandlwana !.
He wasnt anywhere near the place . :lol!: :lol!: .
cheers 90th

21st January 1879? No wonder we haven't heard of him, he got there too early!

The stuff about Sir Frank Whittle is suspect too. Born in Coventry, his company was set up in Rugby, Warwickshire, with the first engine being built at Lutterworth, Leicestershire as far as I am aware, not Clitheroe, Lancashire, and first flight tested in Gloucester (on the very site where my Dad once worked for Gloster Aircraft and I now live).

The pub advertised may well be haunted but in my opinion the only spirits the author of the article has seen are those that come out of a bottle!

Am off to my local for a quick one now - yep, you've guessed it, "The Whittle" ....... cheers! :)

P.S. Will report back if I witness any apparitions ! Shocked

Hi 90th

Am safely back - first time out for a week since doing my back "in".

No apparitions to report although spookily enough I thought at one stage we we were in for a solar eclipse but, no, it was only a brewery delivery truck reversing past the window! :lol!:

Hi OldH

Having looked at the rolls, I have only found the following Officers with the name of Hutchinson.

Captain Frederick Montgomery Gordon Hutchinson - 4th (The King’s Own) Regiment of Foot

Captain George William Hutchinson - 90th (Perthshire Volunteers) Light Infantry

Both Officers served throughout the Zulu War, both are not your man. Suspect
