Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Last weekend, I visited Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift again with my 9 year old son. Walking across the veld and amongst the cairns and memorials I was reminded again how lucky and privileged I am to stay in KwaZulu-Natal and be able to enjoy and appreciate these amazing locations that are so rich with history both for locals and overseas folks. I always find these battlefields so moving and being on that very ground - makes the whole experience utterly amazing to a point that I simply can't find the words....
