Some wonderful photos and documents now online. Including Chard's original manuscript report on Rorke's Drift. One photo which is said to be Majuba is plainly Isandlwana !

Steve,

That one was taken in 1880, Henry Spark Stabb, Commandant Bowker & Jabez Molife are in the photograph, it looks like a contemporary hand has annotated it which is odd, given that Majuba was in 1881.

The one next to it listed as 'Isandhlawana' is the destruction of the umuzi where the Prince Imperial was killed.

For a National Archive some silly spelling errors!

Thanks for the link though.

bigger picture, Gladstone's shameful decision to
capitulate in the 1st BWI, as we know led to the
2nd BWI.which to our everlasting shame intoduced
as policy the scorched earth policy, concen-
tration camps. we prevailed in the end, but the cost
was horrendous. it makes all the battles of the AZW
pale into insignificance.and i repeat it was all for....
Sad .

There are help desks with very knowledgeable people, but you need to know what you are looking for. They produce a number of research guides on a whole range of subjects. See the guides here.
