PostSubject: The Battlefield   Thu Jan 07, 2016 12:22 pm

Ive updated the stitching to incorporate the whole battlefield from the donga on the extreme right of shot to the beginnings of the fugitives trail to the left. The conical hill, Amatutshane, is to the right centre with the whole of the Nyoni ridge stretching across the skyline. Just behind the conical hill a road is visible climbing upwards, this very aproximatly the route taken by Russell up the Notch. To the right of the mountain itself as part of the ridge is the Tahelane Spur. To the right of the conical hill is the entrance to the Quabe valley and the route taken by Durnford. Just above the highest rock in the forground is a small clump of trees that is the position of Durnfords defence line in the donga. Just above that the road can be seen disappearing of to the right, again not the exact road but its very close to the old traders road that Chelmsford followed to reach the Mangeni Falls, amongst the hills on the extreme right horizon. The biggest of that group of hills, to the right is iSipheze where the the Zulu army rested on the night of the 20th before moving to the valley.
All the various stands are plain to locate with the various monuments and cairn groupings.
