Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

I have heard a number of times that Edward Durnford saw Crealocks Order Book with a copy of the order he sent on the morning of the 22 of January??

Is there any information on this??

Geuss he did

In 1882 Crealock attested under oath to Durnford's brother, Edward, that the message in the notebook was the version taken at daybreak on 22nd by Lt Smith-Dorrien to Durnford.

I have always been suspicious of Edward Durnford and what he says. Mainly because he was hell bent on clearing his brothers name of any wrong doing.

DB14 What is your source.

Hi LH

The source emailed to me quoted from the "Invasion of Zululand Sonia Clarke Brenthurst Press 1979."

Crealock himself makes mention of this
