Littlehand,

6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons escorting King Cetshwayo back to kwaZulu in 1883. The 'Skins were in Natal & kwaZulu and played their part in Zulu history, hopefully all of that will be revealed in the not too distant future...

Do I hear the sounds of the "Paddies in Pretoria", Or "Eire in Eschowe" ?
And when?

Cheers

PS not a bad show this Morning England v New Zealand, currently the French are getting a bit of a thumping from Aussie, and of course those famous descendants from RD ( Sorry Martin, I promise I will stop ) are up against the Mighty Mighty Springboks, and Im of to watch in an hours time.

by Donal P. McCracken, University of Durban-Westville

"A third of the Cape's governors were Irish, as were many of the judges and politicians. Both the Cape Colony and the colony of Natal had Irish prime ministers: Sir Thomas Upington, "The Afrikaner from Cork"; and Sir Albert Hime, from Kilcoole in County Wicklow. Place names such as Upington, Porteville, Caledon, Cradock, sir Henry Lowry's Pass, the Biggarsberg Mountains, Donnybrook and Belfast reflect Irish impact on the development of the subcontinent."

Interesting that the Biggarsberg that played such a roll in the invasion is of Irish 'extraction.'

Cheers
