I know its long but if you have a few minutes this is a really interesting account of the 2/3rd Regiment told by one of their own.
It is humerous, (a small part has been already put onthe forum about the sundial) and also factual.
He fought at Nyezane and was holed up in Eshowe.
The hill he is refering  is I'm assuming Wombane (unless its the high ground further up from the column) but has anyone heard of it being called Red Path Hill?
I climbed up Wombane in 2016 and there is indeed a path going up at the far side but this would not have been visible from the British side.
Also check out the account of the ammunition boxes.!!!! Also details of ship wrecks, floggings, rations and regimental movements. Very interesting.

Seems this is the second occassion where a ships captain has prevented a flogging. See here

I'm not sure if anyone reads these accounts I post up but if they have, has anyone heard of the men at Nyezane running low on ammunition?
If you are interested go to the eighth and ninth blocks of text up from the bottom and read about the ammunition being carried up to the firing line by NNC.
One wonders if the NNC at iSandlwana were used for the same roll, two natives to a box.
Its an interesting statement
