Lt. Col. Pulleine: His Lordship is of the cetain opinion that it's far too difficult an approach to be chosen by the Zulu command. Col. Durnford: Yes, well... difficulty never deterred a Zulu commander.

Hi All,
I am currently reading a previous birthday present from the wife, thanks love, Running The Gauntlet by George Mossop. I appeal to the oracles on here, somewhere I have seen a photo of George Mossop in his 30's I think but cannot remember which site it was on and I did not book mark it. Are there any earlier photo's of him???????

Can anyone point me in the right direction. I still get a lump in the throat when poor old Warrior goes to pastures new. One day I might get around to making a model of Mossop and Warrior's flight from Hlobane.

Thanks in anticipation of your help.

cheers
Richie

Bonsoir Frédéric,
Thank you, I knew I had seen it elsewhere, my sister got me that book a couple of weeks ago, it was new for a pocket busting £1.99, one of the best bargains I have had.
Thanks again boys, I knew you would come up trumps.

Are there no earlier photo's of him or is this the only one!
cheers

Hi Richie
Mate , your sister has done very well ! , it can be quite expensive at times online , yes , I agree with you and Les , it's moving the way he describes the demise of poor old Warrior  Suspect . There is a picture of Mossop in my edition , on the back inside cover of the dust jacket , probably taken when he's in 50's I'd say .

Joker's  Very Happy  morning lads. 90th i got my copy
of ' Gauntlet ' from a lovely lady schoolteacher
in Pretoria a few years back, she assured me
that it had the ' original ' pale brown board's
not the usual yellow.. i would'nt know about
that! point being i have never seen the dj, so
was curious to know the colour of your boards,
so to speak, not a question you get asked every
day! ( leave it Frank  Very Happy  ) cheers

Hiya 90th, yes strange! published in 1937..i
believe the pale yellow boards are lettered
in dark blue, my copy as said, in brown, and
yours in cream. now i wonder if the different
colours denote different countries.. my blurb
is in my PB. i would pay the same again just
for a dj, how sad am i?..  No

Briliant picture xhosa,. Very evocative. I've just read about Kambula in 'Washing the Spears' for the umpteenth time and of all the books quoted in the whole book it's Mossops that I'm keen to read.

24th Foot, your very welcome, i wanted to post Mossop's account of
his descent down the pass... its so amazing what young George went
through just to get down to the plain, he got an almighty bollocking
from Buller when he was separated from Warrior, and was told in no
uncertain term's to get him and remount.. ( it was certain death to
lose your horse amongst the madness and chaos which was playing
out all around him!, ).. but his trouble's increased when he reached
the plain.. i will try and locate the book and post the account from
George's point of view.. unless some kind soul has the account to
hand and post's it. cheers xhosa

Hi 24th .
I'm fairly certain you guys are doing the Hlobane climb with Ian & Paul ? , I did the climb on the last Holt's Tour back in 2014 , Ian K read Mossop's account from the top of Devil's Pass , it was very moving and thought provoking , after Ian had finished we climbed down the pass , it was much easier without hundreds of Zulu's wanting to cut you open ! , It's something I wont forget . We went there again last November , and once again I was blessed with a sunny warm day , the weather can get bad there if storms roll in ( Lightning ) .

I hope Ian does that again. To hear Chop's words whilst  standing on the actual spot will be unbelievable. I imagine there will be lots of similar episodes on the trip. Can't wait. I still find it amazing that Trooper Grandier of Weatherly's Horse was actually made prisoner and survived!
Nearly as incredible as three of the rocket battery surviving Isandlwana. So many stories, so little time!
