I have been informed of the recent death of Desmond Collins. Desmond's Grandfather was Henry Longcast, Lord Chelmsford's interpreter.

Henry was deeply effected by the Zulu War and by his association with King Cetshwayo, and his and his descendants story is a fascinating one which is as yet little known outside of the family. From I have learnt so far it rivals - if not betters - that of John Dunn.

Rest in peace Desmond, it my regret we never met.

John Y.
