Can anyone tell me off-hand whether Forbes was with Black's party when it visited Isandhlwana on 14th March 1879?
I'm trying to attribute a quotation which will only work if he accompanied it.
Thanks in advance.

I've just managed to answer my own question. Forbes didn't arrive in SA till April 1879 so he wasn't the author of the quotation I'm looking for.
Thanks anyway!
