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: Australians?   Fri Apr 19, 2013 9:04 pm

With A.N.Z.A.C. Day coming up next week, I got thinking....were there any Australians involved in the Anglo-Zulu War?

And yes, I know that the A.N.Z.A.C. Legend didn't actually start until WWI....specifically 1915 when the Australians landed at Gallipoli, but it's a day to remember Australians in all Wars these days :-)

Do you mean individuals, or units.

Individuals in this case, as I doubt there'd be any actual 'Australian Units' as such

There are quite a few, “In the did they or didn't they take part in the Zulu section”. But these could have been Brits that ended up there in later years, perhaps there were a few soldiers of fortune, from Australia who fought in the Zulu War.

Hi All .
As mentioned by Capt Mostyn there were no Australian units during the AZW . There are a few individuals , but I dont know any details of them except for Archibald Stewart who was from South Australia , not sure if he was born there or not . Stewart was Killed at Hlobane , I may have put the details of his death on here previously ? .
Cheers 90th.
