PostSubject: The last survivor at Isandhlwana   Sat Dec 31, 2011 7:21 am

Hi all

The last of the 24 th Foot at Isandhlwana in the camp was a soldier of Younghusband,he broke away from his company when it descended the rocky shoulder,and instead clambered up to a smal cave at the foot of the cliffs behind.
Crouching down among the boulders,he shot or stabed every zulu who approched him,until at last the warriors fired a volley into the cave ,and killed him.
In my opinion he shot the Zulus as he was spotted by going into hiding or he could not stand the sight of eventrations and could not resist the desire to kill Zulu for that and so he signed his own death warrant ...

In the latter case, it could have been the only survivor in the camp, if he had stayed quiet ... What an achievement it would have been ...

Cheers

Pascal

If this is true, could he not have been one of Younghusband's men, who for some reason didn't charge down wth the rest. Would the cave have been accessible from where Younghusband was located on the ridge?

Hi CTSG

From the Noble 24th.

"I came to a small cave. Looking into this i saw the floor strewn with empty cartridge cases, also shreds of a red serge jacket. Evidently some poor 24th man had defended himslf and made a stand here, In searching about 100 yards below the summit i came across a human skeleton with a rope round the neck. After fetching our doctor from the camp i asked if the remains were those of a white or black man. He replied undoutedly a white man."

Hi DB.
I think Pascal is asking about the identity of the body that was in the cave .

It's Lt Mainwaring's comments , not his body beneath the hill .

Interesting that we are having quotes about a man being shot in 'a little white house', when the last few days has been all about a denial that the tents were still standing.

Hi all

DB14 Yes, I thought you knew the identity of this illustrious stranger!

Sprinbok9, I think the guy would be back in a tent during the massacre of Isandhlwana, could have a bad encounter ...

But in any case, the tents were standing ....

The tents were still standing when the Zulus entered the camp.
Not sure how many were still standing whem the Zulus had finished sacking the camp, prior to LC's return.

Hi Tasker .
Basically none , the zulus had cut the canvas into pieces etc and took it with them . This I think from one of Ian Knight's books ,
possibly ' Zulu Rising ' .

" MacPhail , lived to the age of 101 years. He was famous as being one of the last survivors of the battle of Isandlwana in 1879, where he had served in the Buffalo Border Guard as the quartermaster. He served in the Anglo Boer War, the Bambatha Rebellion, the First World War and when he tried to enlist for the Second World War was turned down as he was considered to be too old."

Heres a new take on the last of the 24th. This could account as to why no body was discovered in the cave. Or could this be another incident.?

Might not be a wholly reliable account, possibly a bit of exaggeration in the account in places, but the account of the last soldier charging out of the cave when he knew the game was over may well be true.
But aren't there other accounts which tell of the man in the cave being overcome by volleys of fire from fire arms? Unless this is a separate incident and a different soldier. Question

Hi Tasker .
The chap in the cave story I've seen mentioned a few times in books here and there , and it's always the same ending , the
zulu said they fired a volley into the cave which killed the soldier . Cant say I can ever remember reading where someone
has charged out of a cave , the only last gasp charge I've heard of is the Younghusband episode .
Cheers 90th.

Agreed. The account LH posted may well have happened, but it is likely to be a different account to the cave soldier. Given the number of soldiers that lost their lives that day, it is not unreaonable that there will be numerous accounts of how men bravely faced their end.

Crevis in the rocks/Cave?
Doesnt matter its wonderful Boys Own Victorian Drama and I love it.

Cant you just see it happening.......... "o ell no bloody bullets left, aye up then yer buggers ear I come.".

Salute to all of them, 144 year ago they were just stopping work for the evening ready for a peaceful nights sleep under the rocks.
Dartnells messenger had just encountered Chelmsford on the plateau.
20 000 zulus were preparing to die a warriors death.
Durnford was battling to get a contingent to stand guard.

They were all alive and full of anticipation.

I can certainly well imagine it happening all right. And so many other great stories of bravery that we'll never know about. No reason to doubt that Zulu's story, whoever he was.
And that charge would not have been a spur of the moment thing either. Anyone who has ever spent some time in and has had time to think whilst in a combat zone, will know that thoughts cross your mind and these things get contemplated by individuals. You will have thought it through, that if the time comes and the enemy are closing in, you're down to your last few bullets: what am I going to do?

Has ever been established if there is a cave at Isandlwana. Crevice seems more like it. No wonder he run at them once his ammo had been used up. You could say, this chap was between a rock and a hard place.

There is indeed a cave on the south eastern side of Isandlwana. I've had the privilege, on several occasions, to spend some time in it, letting my imagination run wild. Mind you, on my last visit the cave was full of flies! It has a depth of around five to six foot, and would've made quite a good place for a last defence. Also, if true, his view of the carnage in the camp would've been truly horrifying

Hi Springbok .
Many of the chaps on both sides have had their last nights sleep on this earth , also their last breakfasts in many cases I'd expect as well . 134 yrs today , things were beginning to unfold . Mid morning I'm thinking at Isandlwana !.

An NNC picquet was placed on top of Isandhlwana. More interestingly there was also a picquet (Natal Carbineers) placed on Stony Koppie. Now, what happened to that would be really interesting to know...presumably, having the best chance of escape they were able to ride off as soon as they saw they were being cut off from the camp.

Hi Julian
Somehow Ive allways connected the corpse/s found under the mountain, one with a rope around his neck and I believe one with crushed skull with the lookout on the mountain, absolutly no proof at all just bags of conjecture.
What I cant understand at all is that the view across the plateau from the top of the mountain to Mabaso is pretty good. Not as often reported by the many authors. That lookout had a clear view so no matter if the impi was at position X or Ngwebini valley when they crested their respective ridges they were visible.
'Stoney Koppie'? Is that the conical koppie that was initial base for Stevens?
Im still playing around with the whole question of activities on the plateau, its possible I may rather do the Rubbics Cube behind my back while being slowly throttled. Both of course being equally pleasurable.

Stony Koppie is Mahlabamkhosi. I tend to prefer to use the contemporary terminology so that there's no confusion caused when quoting from accounts. So you see what I mean about a picquet there. Conical koppie is Amatutshane.
Yes, a clear view of Mabaso from the top of Isandhlwana...I suppose that by the time the impi was found (at x or nearby) the amount of time it would take for the message to get down the mountain by runner to Pulleine is going to be about the same amount of time as it took Shepstone to gallop back down from the plateau to tell Pulleine himself.
The crushed skull chap I tend to think was knobkerried rather than thrown off the mountaintop.

Sorry Mahlabamkhosi, Blacks, Stony, far to many names. Cant recall the piquet there. To late at night in SA and to damned hot to start going through the notes. Cold beers on the pool patio Im afraid.

No more details than that , a body was found with a rope around the neck.

Hi Julian
I cant seem to locate any reference to a Carbineer piquet on MahlabamKhosi. There is a mention of James Lonsdale having a detail on the back of the mountain as an evening piquet. I have Scott positioning 4 vedets on the ridge, one on Quabe hill and one on Nyezi plus himself on Amatutshane. This in addition of course to Barries men on th knoll.

This has been a vexed question for a while and its something Ive been trying to chase down. This below is from a report compiled by Mainwaring on a trip after the war when he visited Rorkes Drift and iSandlwana. I found the report in amongst some other bits and pieces on Tiger hunting that he had put together.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
So possibly this is confirmation of the Zulu reports.

You have made a most interesting discovery. That must surely settle the issue. Does Mainwaring's report help to identify the position of the cave?

Good Morning Brett
Im afraid not. In a prievious paragraph he comments that while he was measuring for his battlefield survey he saw three men wandering around on the mountain top. For some reason he adjudged the path would be from the eastern side. It was scaling that side that he discovered the cave. I found it interesting in that its the only confirmation of the Zulu report and hopefully it will settle the argument as to the veracity of that Zulu claim.

I will be posting other odds and sods over the coming days that I found interesting in the archives.

Re your scouts, I see your following the positioning as per L&Q for which there is no hard evidence whatsoever.  Anstey's map and Mansel's sketch are quite explicit about the scouts' location and whilst they agree with one another, they do not agree with L&Q (I refer to the far flung eastern scouts).

I'm sorry, Frank, my fault, I was catching up on posts.
You wrote earlier:
"I cant seem to locate any reference to a Carbineer piquet on MahlabamKhosi. There is a mention of James Lonsdale having a detail on the back of the mountain as an evening piquet. I have Scott positioning 4 vedets on the ridge, one on Quabe hill and one on Nyezi plus himself on Amatutshane. This in addition of course to Barries men on th knoll."
In my clumsy way I was asking you where you had come across any confirmation that there were picquets on Qwabe and Nyezi.
