Zulu Dawn General Lord Chelmsford: For a savage, as for a child, chastisement is sometimes a kindness. Sir Henry Bartle Frere: Let us hope, General, that this will be the final solution to the Zulu problem.

PostSubject: Some of the wouded at Ulundi including two zulu's   Sun Mar 20, 2011 9:25 pm

Hi 1879Graves.
Here is some more deatail regarding your post ...... Colonel Bond ( Major at the time ? ) Of the 58th Regt , was standing in front of his men forming a portion of the celebrated Square ( Which is a rectangle in Actual shape ! ) at Ulundi . The zulus attacked this portion in great force , crawling up amongst long grass . Suddenly he felt a stinging sensation in his right forearm , for which he
could not imagine a cause . Very shortly after , Major . W.H. Hingerston of the same corps called his attention to the fact that his arm was bleeding . The bullet had entered the upper part of his forearm anteriorly , and , penetrating , made its exit in the middle of the
forearm posteriorly . The entrance wound was the size of a shilling , clean and regular ; that of exit large and irregular . The whole of
the Ulnar Shaft between the two wounds was smashed , and there was considerable Haemorrhage . I removed the whole of the broken bone , controlled the bleeding , dressed it in Tenax , etc , and put on a splint . This officer made an excellent recovery , and
two years after , when for six weeks sitting at the same mess- table together , I had the satisfaction of noticing the very slight diminution of power and use he suffered from after such a severe injury . From ' Surgical Experiences In The Zulu And Transvaal Wars , 1879 and 1881 by Dugald Blair Brown . Spelling is directly from the book .
