OK. I don't have an original but I have a printed-off copy of the one on-line - it must be an expurgated copy. The page nos. are continuous which made me think twice.

There is an original at the National Archives if you want to pop down and have a look at it.

I don't doubt your word in the slightest. I was just trying to do the 2+2=4 thing. Next time I'm at TNA I'll get a complete copy.

Vaughan,

With regard to the spelling of the battle, there are numerous variations inscribed on the monuments and memorials I've come across (not to mention newspaper articles) so I probably wouldn't read too much into the particular spelling on the Davies plaque.

Your transcription in your original post on this thread reads ISANDWRLANA, however the photos I took of the plaque do clearly show ISANDWHLANA (which is a spelling I've come across before).

In relation to positively identifying JWJD, I suppose it would be too much to ask that one of your relatives has a South Africa Campaign medal tucked away in a drawer somewhere complete with name & regiment inscribed on the edge....

Regards,

Tim

Agree. I wouldn't try to read too much into the choice of epitaph either. The Da Vinci code-type message would be a bit too much of a stretch!

Thanks Tim on your take in the spelling of Isandlwana on Arthur's memorial to JWJD. Do you think there is any significance in the lines from psalm 44.6 particularly the last line?

Evening Vaughan,

It does seem something of a Victorian trait to include a biblical line on a gravestone or memorial, so as Julian says it's unlikely to hold any potential clues.

Regards,

Tim
