Hi guys
Here are some fun questions, see how you go.

1 What was James Rorkes wife called
2 What do AG Godwin and Bromhead have in common.
3 Who was Otto Witts house guest
4 When Chelmsford left iSandlwana his men carried basic rations, what were they?
5 "Nothing remains but to fight". Who said it
6 "Black as hell and thick as grass". Who said it
7 Who was credited with firing the first shot at RD
8 During the fighting at RD who had his helmet hit while carrying ammo to the hospital
9 The bullet that killed Thomas Cole also wounded another man, who was he
10 After Hitch was wounded an offer was made to "put him out", who made it.

There you go, ten questions some very easy, some just easy.
It would be nice to see some of our new members having a shot.

Have fun

Hi Impi.

before the fight fully began .

Hi Springbok .
I see Reynolds also had a close shave when taking ammo to the Hospital as he was shot in the helmet and a hole was
the result , luckily for him it wasnt in his head ! . I see your answer in the quiz was Russell ??????????. I dont know of a
Russell even being present at the Drift ???.
cheers 90th.
