"Of particular interest is the Report by Bromhead who was sent with a detachment to clean up the site of Isandlwhana which had lain abandoned by the British and Zulus for 6 months. The bodies of the soldiers and Zulus were found desiccated by the conditions and a detailed map shows exactly where the mass graves were dug and how many soldiers, by regiment, and Zulus were buried in each.

Ray a long time ago I posted Alfred Boast's report , regarding his party's burial of the bones at Isandlawana.
Type Alfred Boast in the search box and you should find it . I'm fairly certain the Bromhead burial detail was much later .
The Bromhead involved in the burials at Isandlwana is not Gonville Bromhead of RD fame , it was his brother from memory ,
C.J.Bromhead Brvt - Maj 2 / 24th , happy to be corrected .

This from ' Companion To The Zulu War ' by Ian Knight .
'' On June 20th Lt - Col Black led a party of 80 dragoons , 140 2 / 24th , 360 Border Guards and 50 men of Teteluku's Horse from RD to Isandlwana . They were accompanied by Maj Dartnell and representitives of the Natal Volunteers , Large numbers of the 24th were buried in shallow graves and stones piled over the bodies '' . Ian goes on to say '' By September the reports of troops passing the site of bodies exposed by the rain persuaded Sir George Colley , then Chief Of Staff in South Africa , to dispatch a party under Bvt - Maj CJ Bromhead - Gonville's brother - to tidy the site . Bromhead and two Co's of the 2 /24 th camped at Isandlwana on the 19th Sept and carefully searched the field . Those graves which were disintergrating were rebuilt and a number of outling bodies , missed by the earlier details , were also interred . Bromhead insrtucted his men to build 3 large Cairns on the spots where he judged the 24th's resistance to have been the greatest ''.
Nevertheless , the haste with which the early buriels had been completed meant that graves continued to wash open . In March 1880 Lt.M. O'connell of the 60th Rifles was sent to Isandlwana accompanied by a detatchment of the NMP . O'Connell found that on the slopes which drained into the dongas many graves had become disturbed . His methods in redress were nothing if not practical . Seems I was incorrect earlier , as I thought CJ Bromhead undertook his burial task after Boast , but Boast , did indeed take his turn at Isandlwana , well after CJ.Bromhead , it wasnt until 15th Feb 1883.

Impi I saw Pete's post but I'm still none the wiser , unfortunately I'm getting ready to go to work so I dont have the time to look for Mainwaring's map , I'm not sure I even have it or remember seeing it ! . If anyone can tell me which book its in ,or indeed if its in a book , it will be much appreciated . I've checked ' Hill Of The Sphinx ' by FWD Jackson and it isnt there .

Hi xhosa .
I do remember that Mainwaring drew a map but I dont think I have it , although , I have that many books , it may be in one of them I'd think ! . Agreed , it certainly would look good in a frame Salute . I checked the ' Narrative of Operations ' of the zulu war and FWD Jackson's ' Hill Of The Sphinx ' it isnt in either . I'll go through a few more books and see if I can find it . Salute 
Hi Rusteze.
Unfortunately for me I dont have the Atkinson book . Thanks for the heads up much appreciated . Salute

Hiya all,thanks for that 90th and you springbok9,
yeah i have Atkinson a very nice copy, i have tried
to get all ist eds i could on the 24th and i think i
have succeeded, with the exception of Paton Glennie
and Penn Symons. had to make do with the dp&g
reprint.

The thing is i forgot the map was in Atkinson but my
map is not out of a book its the real deal printed in
1880 and circulated to god knows..i got mine from a
well known bookseller in York along with a Blue Book
and a few Parliamentary Papers on such things as Sir
Garnet Wolsleys review of the conduct of the Troops
in South Africa, the Detention and the Restoration of
Cetshwayo.and sadly. a review of the sentence of 11
Natives ( their words ) to death in Natal.( during the
Bhambata Rebellion.) Admin if you still have those
images could you please post the one of the map
framed so 90th can see it. cheers all Les.

90th, mr greaves, thanks.
i cant remember how much
i paid for it (nearly 10 yrs
ago) but i suspect i got a
bargain..it could not have
been that prohibitive as i'm
not in a position to flash the
cash on everything i see\want.
regards Les.
