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.

PostSubject: Isandlwana camp map   Thu Dec 27, 2012 7:18 pm

Hello, hope all have had a good Christmas, i am wondering if anyone can direct me, to a map/diagram of the camp pre-Battle, how it was laid out, tents - hospital -kitchen-latrine sort of map/diagram. Very interested in the lay of the actual camp.

I'm sure there's two photos on the forum from Peter Quantrill & Ron Lock showing the layout of the camp.

As far as Im aware the very first 'picture' of the camp was painted by Crealock and was unfinished. The first completed map was by Penn Symonds with additional sketches from various suvivors, Molefe etc. The first official ones I seem to recall were by Anstey and Mainwaring. There was possibly one by Hammer attached to a letter to his father ( this map has dissapeared and Im currently trying to trace it).

Regards

I am in contact with Mr. Lock (who in turn is in contact with Mr. Quantrill) and shall bring this question to their attention, hopefully tomorrow, 26-10-2015.

It is not a map - but a watercolour view of the camp at Isandlwana - the work of John Churchill Simpson executed in 1998. There is a print on display in the Regimental Museum in Brecon.
