PostSubject: Isandhlwana: Lt DALY body   Fri Jun 20, 2014 12:49 pm

Hello,
In "Zulu VIctory" by LOCK and QUANTRILL p.217.
"Months later, his body [Lt P. DALY], with that of WARDELL was found amongst a group of sixty men who had rallied and died together".
Really, his body was found near WARDELL? For me there are no testimony to his fate

Cheers.

Frédéric

Hi Ymob

I am also interested in this as i just reread Zulu Victory this morning scratch
Wardell was found with Lt. Dyer of the 2nd 24th in a clump of 68 according to Wilson Black with 2 officers who were unrecognizable so i'd be interested how they identified Daly?  He was part of F company so a significant distance from H company.

Cheers
Sam

Bonsoir Sam,
Unfortunately, Ron Lock in his last book, "Isandlwana the revelaton of a disaster" said nothing about Lt Pat Daly's corpse.
Cheers.

Sam,
Just for information:
On the website "The Heritage Portal, AZW1879 some personalities photographied",the following comment is written:

"Lieutenant James Patrick Daly (Irish) – His body was found among about 60 British dead who made a “last stand” near the Banks of the Manzimnyana stream behind Isandlwana. His body was recovered by his brother, who also served in Zululand at the time and taken back to the UK – One of only a few British dead from the battle who were not buried where they fell. He was 23 at the time of his death".

Obviousy there is a confusion (disorder) between Daly and his friend Anstey.

On the same website, you can read about Anstey;

"Lieutenant Edgar Oliphant Anstey – He served in the Mediterranean prior to his duty in South Africa. His body was found among about 60 British dead - those who made a “last stand” near the banks of the Manzimnyana stream behind Isandlwana. He was 27 at the time of his death. His body was also taken back to England for burial there".

As you know, Daily's corpse was never taken back to home.

Cheers.

Frédéric
