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.

Shocked
Thanks for the information 90th - I didn't know that!!!!!
Do you think they lost the colours in the river, or do you think the Zulus on the Natal side chucked their bodies and the colours (the damning evidence) back into the Buffalo, to try to disguise the fact that it was friendly zulus who had killed them?

Hi Kopie .
I believe the Colours were lost , not dumped in the river , Melvill and Coghill were found a fair distance from the river and had climbed a steep hill before they were killed , they were not tossed back into the river . agree
Cheers 90th.

Wow, thanks.
Therefore, their bodies were found, minus their excuse - the colours.

Hi Kopie .
If you use the search box on the left hand side you'll be able to read quite a bit on Melvill and Coghill , including finding their bodies and the subsequent burial . agree
90th Salute
