"On 20th December 1878, HMS Tenedos, under the command of Captain Edward Adeane, moored at Durban. On New Year's Day 1879, she landed a force of 3 officers and 58 men, led by Lieutenant Anthony Kingscote. They marched to the mouth of the Tegula River and joined the contingent from HMS Active. The men from Tenedos crossed the river and, along with men from 'The Buffs' and the Royal Engineers, built Fort Tenedos on the Zululand side. It was from this position that they joined Colonel Pearson's (of 'The Buffs' - the 3rd Regiment of Foot) No.1 Column in the Zulu War in January 1879. The column, a force of around 4,000 men included a Naval Brigade made up of 270 seamen and marines from HMS Active and HMS Tenedos equipped with two gatling guns and two 24-pounder rocket tubes."
