Tim,

I'll be there, no worries.

I'm currently putting kwaCulture right about things!

Will any of you be in Brecon before hand?

Regards,

This Reenactment in Cardiff sounds great to me. Sadly I am not sure, if I can make it to go there. (I am from Central Europe.)

Maybe one can help me with some questions.

Are  there really around 80 Zulu reenactors? Where are they from, are they organized like the "Diehards" or are they non-professional actors from Cardiff?

Another thing which I like to know. For such an historic event, with the "result" of the battle fix. Which "rules" apply for such a reenactment. Rules in regards of "how the battle develops", "when and how to move", "who pretends to be shot / killed / casualty".

Would be great if those who will be there, could share some photographs and videos (if possible and permitted) afterwards.

Thanks!

martinusmagnus,

The Zulu re-enactors are just that, Zulu who have been apparently trained in the ways of their forebears. I believe that they have been commissioned in their task by King Goodwill.

I noticed an article in a local paper that they were due to give a demonstration in London but got lost and ended up in a school in Yorkshire.

Frank,

Not one and the same.

The group that got lost were The Lions of Zululand.

It was a diversionary flank attack John to draw attention away from the main impi!

Tim,

I think some of the boys were pitted against The Lions... at Chatham for Sergeants' Mess Evening some years back.

Have you had any contact from the opposition?

Anyone going to this apart from Tim & I.

I'm told Ian Knight is narrating the re-enactment - so 90th must have booked his ticket!

Tim,

You'll have to put in a blank file for our missing Zulu friend.

As Tim and I appear to be the only ones attending the re-enactment, I assume that I'll be talking to myself at these:

Maybe I travel to Cardiff for the reenactment on August 31.

Is admission free, or how does this work with Tickets?

Do not want to go there just to read the sign "Sold Out" ;-)

I believe that the entrance to Cardiff Castle allows you to see the reenactment but my advice would be to check with the Castle direct as I know they were talking about limiting spectators to 4000 - I am only there to build a bridge (figuratively) old chap!

I asked at Cardiff castle.

They said:

"The event is being held in the grounds so there is no cap on numbers."

Gary,

I thought you would have been there just for the narration.  Best book your ticket now for the 140th for the repeat performance.

Yes in a sense the lectures were poorly attended, but when three of your audience are the direct descendants of King Cetshwayo who cares?  In addition during course of the second lecture, I was able to personally express my concerns regarding the iSandlwana Cultural Centre.  That in turn has led to three nights of discussion between the interested parties which might lead to changes being made.

L-r: Prince Buza; Princess Nqobangothando; Queen Mantfombi; Princess Nomkhosi; Brigadier General S. Mahlobo & Elliot Ngubane

Their Royal Highnesses Prince Buza, Princess Nqobangothando & Princess Nomkhosi are all direct descendants of King Cetshwayo kaMpande.

Elliot Ngubane conceived the original plan for King Cetshwayo kaMpande 2017 Celebrations.

Brigadier Mahlobo is the South African Military Attache in London.

I will give a more detailed account of the events from my perspective shortly.
