Andy,

Are you representing the U. K. in the Eurovision Song Contest? Nil points! Mad

Kenny,

Are you in the same group as 1879Graves? In the words of David Jacobs “Its a miss.” Mad

Keyboarding with barely a whisper----Have a great pilgrimage.   Remember our trip in "99 and how you were sanctioned for desertion and were foaming at Hlobane!  (The above from Chard's recently discovered diary)

My recollection is that you desperately needed medication to avert being the last casualty at Hlobane. I remember saving Fingers' life during the Buffalo's deluge and, near the end, being rescued by a Zulu with a stick crossing the flooded torrent--shades of Smith-Dorrien's escape and Coghill's selflessness. And where were you: Doing your best to imitate Harward's craven ride for assistance. Ah, the adventure of being "Lost in Zululand." Who was your aide de camp, Dr. E?

Dr. Death & Carlos, but only one of those helped me change the tyre in the deluge, whilst the other eat your sandwiches.

As for desertion what about the bottle shop at iSandlwana?

Is it Princess Eugenie’s maid, the future Mrs Walkinshaw, who married Woods bugler after they met when they visited Zululand. I’m on hol in NZ so can’t trace her name?

JB, As you well know, Fingers and I were doing a recon in the bottle shop. This so the main body wouldn't get into a jam and be surrounded. I can still remember the stud policeman Harry getting swept down the flooded buffalo like a tumbleweed, and that one fellow (now passed) yelling for me to stay with the stranded non-swimmers. I guess we had our own little adventure out in the wilds of Zululand. Remember we, the stragglers, were all treated for hypothermia at Rattray's.

RB,

Location: The Hellenic Centre, Marylebone, London, W1U 5AS

Its all Greek to me...

Are the NC beaches back in order now? If so enjoy yourself!

It will be a quick turnaround for me between KZN & India.

There is a family connection between the lady in the photograph and one of the places that we are visiting.

Thanks, JB, for the info. Why the change of venue? Beaches are OK now. Frere's memsahib? Yes, you'd better get used to traveling or the memsahib will dump you down the well at Cawnpore.

Frances Pulleine appears on Page 50 of Victoria’s Harvest, it isn’t her.

Wasn’t Frances a common name then - so many of them...

Hi John

Yes, I have one of two Fanny's in my family around that time.

So I assume you are after a Frances.......with something to do with Zululand, but who has maybe never been on the veldt.....and who was daughter of and married to a soldier - most likely an officer......

Cheers

Simon

Simon,

You assume too much, yes 1879 appears to have abounded with Frances: Miss Frances Colenso, Mrs. Frances Durnford, Miss Frances Durnford & Mrs. Frances Pulleine...

But maybe it wasn’t her first name? Or maybe it is just a load of old fanny...

Fred,

That’s just ‘armless fun I take it?

No this lady’s husband was in the field, rather driving a desk at Horse Guards.

Smoko,

I’m afraid you are incorrect.

John,

A wild guess - her husband was killed at Isandlwana - her name was Evelyn - and she died Evelyn Beerbohm on 21 November 1931. She is responsible for the memorial to her late husband in St. Peter’s PMB.

Peter,

To my knowledge she did not. I don’t think her husband met him in person either.

Kenny,

No her husband returned home to her, and her maiden surname was not Davies...

An even wilder guess - her father served in the Royal Canadians Rifles.
