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: Did they or didnt they take part in the zulu war    Fri Dec 20, 2013 2:10 am

Regimental Order , 26th November , 1878 .
The Corps being ordered out by his Excellency the Lt - Governor , members will parade in heavy marching order
on the Market Square at 9 am on Friday 29th Inst .
Theo. Shepstone , Jnr ;
Captain Commanding N.C '
Of the 60 who mustered at this order , Matterson was one of them .
From ' For God , Queen & Colony ' by Terry Sole ,
Matterson , Arthur . Injured , date unknown . On his way from Helpmekaar to Maritzburg with several other Carbineers , and whilst on the road between there and Greytown his horse stumbled , fell and rolled over him , the result being a broken collarbone
besides severe bruises . He was taken on to Greytown
On the 20th Jan the Regt , now reduced to 57 men , advanced with the 3rd Column to their new camp site , under the peak
of a strange looking hill to the east , called Isandlwana . The regt had been reduced by the Hospitilisation of Matterson , Farrier Sgt Hill and Trpr Rock had for one reason or another left the regt and returned to Maritzburg .
Certainly they were 3 lucky lads ! .
