Hi,

Have any of you fine fellows got a couple of decent shots from Mostyn & Cavaye's position (up the Spur) both towards the enemy and back towards the camp?

I could also do with a shot from Isandlwana up the Spur - I'm trying to get my head around the steepness & view.

Thanks a lot

Simon

Hi Frank,

I've got the photos - thanks a lot.

I am doing myself a PowerPoint presentation of the battlefield, starting in the North, and moving down the firing line, on to the last stands (via a couple of shots of Durnfords foray and the Right Horn & Shepstones Stand) and then along the Fugitives Trail.

I have got decent shots of most of the areas but was lacking some of the Spur area.

Once again, thanks a lot

Sime

Hi Frank,

I think I have it about covered now, I am quite pleased with the results now

The only shots I would like are some of the rear of Isandlwana looking West-ish, (you have sent me some from the rear looking towards Shepstone's stand area) I am stuck for getting a decent idea of the path of the Right horn. I have found one image but some one has used PowerPoint to put notes on it, which I can not get rid of.

I could also do with a photo of the gulley, where the guns were finally stopped, if you have one.

Thanks

Simon
