Waving the Welsh Flag at Isandlwana last year for a Welsh friend, the flag now I believe adorns the wall in the Bar at the Lodge. Also the Memorial over Coghill and Melvills grave on the Buffalo River.

I'm not Welsh so I think I can take it !!!  I have Scottish ancestry on both sides of my family. As I said I did it for a Welsh friend, I realise there weren't that many welsh men in the 24th Regiment unlike what was put forward in the film  "Zulu".  Never mind he was happy !!

But it's good to see, a Welsh flag, at Isandlwana, representing the Welshman that fought in the Battle.

Perhaps Martin can do the same for the British.

Admin,

Wasn't the Welshman's name Will?

No Will was one of the Zulu, the one the Brits were told to fire at.

John

The Welsh flag is to remember Sir Bartle Frere who paid for the Melvill/Coghill grave. Sir Bartle was as you know born in Clydach - which was Brecknockshire now Monmouthshire.

Kenny,

There's no need to remind me of that fact, I was the one who brought it up during the Wales & Zulu talk by Bill & Paul at the N.A.M.

Only to be told Frere was an Englishman born in Wales, something I subsequently refuted by proving Frere's very strong Welsh roots.
