Hi Littlehand

Some great images posted today.

Do you know where St Paul's camp is situated? I had not come across this camp before.

Hi JohnB.
According to ' British Fortifications In Zululand 1879 ' by Ian Knight and Illustrated by A. Hook ...... Yes , Hook !!.
It is situated half way between Ulundi and Eshowe .The notation on the map states ... St. Pauls Redoubt ( Built Post Ulundi for Pacification Purposes ) .
cheers 90th .

Hi Johnb.
Some more info , this from ' Field Guide to the war in zululand and the defence of Natal 1879 ' by J.P.C. Laband & P.S. Thompson.
Page 93 ........... ' On the hill adjacent to St. Pauls Mission , the 5th Co , Royal Engineers began a small redoubt ( Known Locally today as ' eSoyini ' ) on the 28th July , which was garrisoned by men of the 90th LI , stationed at the mission from july 15 until the
end of September . A small detachment of Imperial troops later garrisoned the post from Oct 1887 to Sept 1888 and may have altered the Redoubt ' .
cheers 90th.

Hi johnB.
On further checking there is a black & white scale drawing of the floor plan of the St. Pauls Redoubt on page 99 of the
Laband & Thompson publication if anyone is able to post it on the forum .

Thanks 90th for the information.

I see from the dates and the loaction of the camp this must have been used during the second invasion.

Ken Gilllings would be in a better position to tell you where St Paul’s is. But it’s where Chelmsford handed over command to Wolseley
