PostSubject: Thomas Newmarch 1951 Cape Times Article   Thomas Newmarch 1951 Cape Times Article EmptySat Aug 01, 2020 9:56 pm

I need a bit of assistance on a matter… I’m after the complete text of the following:

Article from Thomas Henry Newmarch, published in the Cape Times on November 17th, 1951. Transcript in Killie Campbell with reference number KCM 0217/1117.

“He (Trooper Adams of the Buffalo Border Guard) told me that he and his half-section when on vedette duty early on January 22, saw from a high hill overlooking a deep valley, saw the Zulu army, which he estimated to be between 25,000 and 30,000 being divided into two ‘horns’ to surround the camp at Isandhlwana.............They [Adams and ‘half-section’] immediately returned to camp and reported to an Imperial officer, who was still in bed in his tent. The man pooh poohed the idea that the Zulus would attack the camp. Adams said that when he and his half-section realised that practically no heed was being taken of what they had seen and reported, they made up their minds, that as soon as the Zulus attacked they would take the first opportunity to make a dash to escape. They did this together with others of the Border Guard.”

I can’t say I have an unshakebale faith in the contents of this article, but there is obviously value in evaluating any anecdotes from an Isandlwana survivor, even secondhand.
