Zulu Film Quote: (Jack Hawkins) Death waits you. You have made a covenant with death, and with Hell you are in agreement. You're all going to die. Don't you realize? Can't you see? You're all going to die. Die. Death awaits you all.

I recently bought a copy of the "Field Guide to The War in Zululand and the Defence of Natal 1879" by J.P.C. Laband and P.S. Thompson. I must be honest and admit that I had no idea that there had been so many permanent/temporary and improvised fortifications erected across the country during this campaign. I found the book most useful in regards to the fortifications location/layout and complement during the hostilities. Although many have no doubt been lost, I was most interested to find out more about Fort Newdigate which I had visited early this year. Based on the book I now know that Ford Newdigate was built along the Second Division's line of advance and communication. Named after the Commander of the Division Major-General E. Newdigate, the fort was completed on 6th June 1879 and housed a complement that was made up by the Royal Scots Fusiliers (2/21st), a detachment of the Royal Artillery (No. 10 Battery, 7th Brigade) equipped with two Gatling guns as well as a single company of the 2nd battalion N.N.C. Communication between fortifications were maintained by a squadron of the King's Dragoon Guards. Using the small illustration provided on page 96 and with all the other information gathered, I can now gaze upon the grassy patch with a few boulders and noticeable breastwork and develop an idea of what the fort must have actually looked like.

Hi Richie Rich
I've been lucky enough to visit many of the old Forts / Fortifications that were built ,  or used throughout the AZW of 1879 , there are many that are still visible although a lot aren't as well , many are situated on Private property nowadays , always pays to ask for permission to visit the fortifications which are situated on Private Land , we were never refused permission .
90th Very Happy
