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,

John Y.

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?
