This is an odd little article and forgive me if it has already been discussed on the forum.
Bearing in mind where it was published (SA) it looks like it is refering to the Colonials.
Colonel Royston is, I am assuming, Lieutenant and Adjutant William Royston (Natal Carbineers) but has anyone any idea who Col E.M Greene is?
There are a couple of Trooper Green's in the NMP but neither with the initials of E.M. There are no Green's in the IMI and a cursory glance through the colonial medal rolls doesn't turn up anything either scratch

Or is the whole article a load of old codswollop? Suspect

Morning Gary
Thanks for that Salute
I have amended the title adding Greene's details and AZW rank (Trooper rather than Colonel) as well as Royston's details so they are searchable and connected with this article.
Any thoughts on the article itself?
Kate Very Happy

Hi Kate
No , not really , think it's an over exaggerated play on words , it's in many of the decent books regarding the NMP and NC that if their horses weren't fit , they , and their owners were forced to stay behind in the camp .

So that you get your spelling correct...
Edward Mackenzie Green was a Trooper in the Natal Carbineers whose horse went lame. His cousin, Trooper Malcom Moodie, who remained at Isandhlwana, lent him his horse to ride to the Mangeni. It was Green who later found and identified Moodie's body.
In later life Green changed his name to Greene before becoming Colonel, Natal Carbineers.
