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.

On the 22nd / 23rd Jan 2012. A roll call of all those who fought and died at The Battles of “Inyezane” “Isandlwana” & “Rorke’s Drift” Will scroll across all pages on the 1879ZuluWar forum.


When we bow our heads in reflection, we remember those who fought and died on both sides. After 133 years they will be remembered. Idea

Yes, great idea.

A nice way to honour and remember all who fought and died.

Will the roll call be available to download and print off?

Well, it's getting close to time when our boys will be going at it with those brave Zulu Warrors . 133 years ago tomorrow. Well I hope we will all raise a glass to their memory. 133 years on and our boys are still remembered, let's not forget the other two Battles that was fought on the same day as Isandlwana, one continuing to the 23rd Jan. Looking forward to seeing the scrolling roll of honour detailing the names of those who lost their lives on the day 22nd / 23rd Jan 1879,

Good morning Pete

Yes, let us remember today all those who fell at Isandlwana, and also at Rorke's Drift 22nd/23rd

May they rest in peace, and may they never be forgotten.

Martin.

It's thanks to sites like this, their names will be remembered for evermore. Hard to imagine at this time 133 years agon they were alive, but before the Sun goes down, most will be laying still on the hill of Isandlwana. But the Battel for Rorkes Drift will still rage on.

Hi All,
By this time local, it was all over up at the hill, but the first person to arrive at the RD garrison, a Carbineer, had arrived in a very bad state and had broken the bad news about the lost camp at Isandlwana.

regards

Had a little malt in the memory of the British soldiers, the Zulu warriors and all the brave men who died in this tragic war.
