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.

Did all these people actually see Durnford arrive. Or could it be they were out out doing whatever, and on returning to camp saw Durnford therefrom recording the times they saw him? Just a thought.

They all mention that Colonel Durnford/Colonel Durnfords forces/ Colonel Durnfords Column arrived at such and such a time.
I specifically mentioned the last three on the list as being from the rocket battery as their quoted times are out by at least 30 minutes, the Rocket Battery arrived after Durnford.
Im also sure that Wilson /Dillon and Williams also make mention of him arriving. So yes a hell of a lot of testimony and mostly around the 10/11 oclock period.
Cheers

Springbok I beleive there was also a chap by the name of "Goff" who escaped, also a member of the rocket battery. Do you have anything on him.

Attested 12th April 1873 aged 24 years & 7 months.

John/impi
Pvt Wilson was incorrectly identified as Private E Dillon and his original statement was attributed that way. He was 1/24th Band Member
