Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

I'm really glad you said alleged. I do have a whole seies shot on the ridge my problem at present is Photobucket is being very temperamental and wont allow me to do a bloody thing. Ive been trying to download maps for the last two days so please bare with me till the omnipotent pixels and bytes of this world decide to get there act together.
I did post an essay some time ago on the ridge issue with a lot of photos, could be worth a search. Ive just completed a grid search over the whole Tahelane from the ridge to the Northern ridge. My equiptment was very sophisticated and sensitive. There was not one peep from the whole inner ring of the Spur, amongst the rocks or on the reverse slope. Even allowing for the 138 years of treasure hunting it wouldn't be beyond imagination that there would be the odd cartridge or two, but nothing at ll and the ground around the rim is very virgin. Tends to support my long held thoughts that the troops were not in the traditional position.
Soon as I'm able I will arrange the photos.

Thank you that would be brilliant. Photobucket can be a hell of a pain sometimes!
Will have a search for the essay.
