Hi Graves1879.
I'm Fairly certain the Morosi affair was in 1879 , not 77-78 ( Gaikas , Galekas and possibly the first attack on Sekukuni ) scratch scratch . Happy to be corrected . scratch
cheers 90th. 😕

I found refrence to him because witnessed Captain Shepstone take iteams from Durnford body.

I think the story goes,

He borrowed a sick troopers uniform to vist Isandlwana in May and found his brothers body
lying close to Durnfords.

I think he may have been conacted to the Natal Witness papers
