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.

We all know? My little guy, he should never speak for others ...

As for me, I am sufficiently busy Like this, 16 hours on 24, if I have to You need to study mo more hours,

my job does not advance ...

Normally, someone should be able to tell this history in 3 or 4 lines ...

Cheers

Two companies Stayed on the the heigts of Entonganeni, the balance of the 24th stayed on the banks of the White Umvolosi while the column advanced to Ulundi.
After the battle the regiment marched back to Durban and left on the 'Egypt' for England

The regiment was based at Gosport until November and then left for Colchester. From there the Regimental title disapeared and the South Wales Borderors came into being.

2nd Batallion Stayed at RD until April then split with 4 companies moving to DUndee and then to Landmans drift and Kopje Alleine. They escorted Napoleons body to PMB and where involved in building Fort Warwick.
F and H companies escort Wolseley to Ulundi under Major Bromhead, burying the dead at iSandlwana on the way back. After marcching back to Durban they embarked on the 'ORONTES' for GIBRALTOR.

Oh yes the ships cat was called Eric.

So effectivly the last shots fired in anger where by B Company in January 1879.

Hope that helps.

thank you and Salute springbok9

Well, that what interests me, so after the war with the Zulu ,and before becoming the Borderors South Wales ,the 24 th did not fight again...

We wanted to spare because of Issandhlwana ?

But when he became the South Wales Borderors, were still inside, 24 th veterans who fought in Zululand ?

And what are the others colonial wars and battles involving the South Wales Borderors ?

Cheers

Burma
Boer War
WW1
India
China
Ireland
Aden
Egypt
Hong Kong
Palestine

The list is endless

I would suggest you buy a copy of CT Atkinsons regimental history from 1689 to 1937 for around GBP300. Have a worf with Bill he may have a second hand copy around.

Atkinson ? Yes indeed, a very detailed account. of the Regiment's history. We do have a few used copies we could sell, but as Sprinbok has indicated, they are not cheap. We could sell you one for £250, which is a fair bit below the normal asking price !

Ring the Museum if you weant a copy.
