Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

In Frank Emery's 'The Red Soldier' (p187) a reference is given for Tom Cullern's letter home to his father, the Postmaster in Monmouth, as the South Wales Daily Telegram on 17/03/1879. Cannot find it and so I wondered if anyone else has encountered this problem and solved it please? By the way, the paper paper is also quoted by Spiers-but no record in any archive, weird...

Thank you very much for your time and trouble, I have tried all of the available alternatives (even name-changes) but had no luck. I have still got an enquiry running and if I get a result I will post it on the site. Thank you once again.
