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

Assumed Position of the Artillery Pieces at Isandlwana Empty
PostSubject: Assumed Position of the Artillery Pieces at Isandlwana   Assumed Position of the Artillery Pieces at Isandlwana EmptySun Sep 08, 2019 1:13 pm

Hi all. This may be a strange request, but just before Ken Gillings passed away I spent 14 days on tour with him. At Isandlwana we spoke about the memorial to the artillery placed there by himself and two others.

Would anyone on the forum be able to recall who the other two fellows were, and when this was done?

Thanks so much
Shelldon

It was unveiled at the 120th Anniversary, so twenty years ago.

Ive asked Pam Macfaden but she would like to see the photo, anyone have a copy of it? The other possibility of course would be David Rattray. I seem to recall the Durban Artillery chaps sponsored the memorial so again it could have been one of their representatives

From a memorial to Ken.
He facilitated the erection of a memorial on the Isandlwana battlefields to N/5 Battery, Royal Artillery, which was unveiled by The Master Gunner of St James’s Park, Field Marshall The Lord Vincent in the presence of His Majesty, King Goodwill Zwelithini during the celebrations to mark the 120th anniversary of the battle in 1999."

Ken was of course an ex member of the Field Artillery.
