The "SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE ZULU WAR OF 1879 AND OTHER VICTORIAN BATTLES OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE" Section doesn't seemed to be moving forward. So if anyone has any ideas that would be benifical to the forum. Let me know, I can then change the above section to accomodate. agree

How about a medic section, dedicated to the Dr, Surgeons, Nurses, ect. There's enough information on here at present, would just mean moving the information to the new section. Just an idea. Very Happy

I thought, the graves with interesting stories was a good idea. The non-Zulu War graves. Would like to see that back. agree

Hi,
I would like to see a comprehensive "Roll Call" section (which would be not open to comments or discussion) by unit for both British/Naval/Colonials with photo's assigned to each of the names where possible so I could see who people were talking about and the service number where applicable, decorations/medals awarded and battles engaged in etc. I suppose a family tree by regiment/unit.

I would also like to see a section called "Illustrations of the Zulu war" where all known paintings, drawings and illustrations are assigned to each battle and the same for an A to Z by person and regiment.

cheers
Richie

Based on Springbok's suggestion above why don't we just club together and have an interpreter sitting alongside Pascal? Because I am sure many of our Breton friend's fine questions are actually lost in translation.

One difficulty on the forum is newer members ( and old ones with bad memories) requesting visual information and its really difficult to try and locate posted photos.
Would it be feasable to have a photo library section. Im thinking of a very recent post by DAVID asking for colors of the stone work at RD, with a photo library it would be very east for him to have referenced a recent photo.

In a addition when a point is being discussed a reference to a photo could aid the debate greatly. I think specifically of trying to illustrate the path Durnford took when leaving the camp

Cheers

Create another section to be known as: Other Zulu wars.

And deal with all conflicts delivered by the Zulu people except 1879 zulu war Wink

The wars in Zululand of 1883-1888 are a logical continuation of the 1879! So it makes sense that they have their own section, right?
