Hi 90th,
thanks for looking mate, I was given that name by a friend who it is his great grandfather. He says that he still has a Zulu shield, club and spear....somewhere in the loft. Ive asked that if he were to find them that he would send me a picture.

So that H. Morgan would not have been at Isandlwana. Maybe he enlisted under another name???

Thanks for the help.
