At this approximate  time 144 years ago Captain Alan Gardner was arriving back in camp to be met by a breathless Captain Shepstone.
It was all about to go horribly wrong .......

It's weird but every year for as long as I remember, this day has had the same quality about it for me as Armistice Day.

O' dont forget your brother's in the dust.
O' dont forget where heroes sleep.
Think kindly of the men who bled for thee and with their
names in history large and deep.

In the lonely drift they died
With the pale lone star o',erhead
O! don't forget your soldiers brave and true
Though numbered with the dead
There were no Ravens wheeling in the sky,
There was no sounds of battle- all was still;
There was no Martials music pealing nigh,
But silence deep as death beneath the hill.

Till on rumours deadly wing
News of Isandlwana came;
Then they got their rifles out,
And waited all the same.

O' dont forget that lonely valley south,
For there three thousand Zulus shook the earth.
But they were not appalled those sons of ours,
not stained the noble scotcheon of their birth.

For each yell they gave a shout,
and for trust they gave on more;
Where are they now o brothers;
But immortal evermore.

O' dont forget the flower of British then,
Midst all the rage of battle how they stood
of Englands triumph o'er the field of blood;
O' dont forget the men who make thee Great.
O' dont forget the soldiers true who died,
O' dont forget the hero's grave down south
on the lonely mountain side.

D R Davies

Evening Express and Evening Mail Thursday November 3rd, 1910.

Prayer for the Combatants
"O Eternal Lord God through whose inscrutable providence it has come to pass that the terrible scourge of war is laid by our hands upon a neighbouring people, we humbly commend to thy mercy all those whose office it is to rule at this time, and all who shall be called to take part in the conflict. Thou knowest Heavenly Father what lessens we Christians need to be taught, though it be by suffering even unto death, as well as the ignorant heathens with whom we fight. We pray that in our different stations we may lay to heart Thy Divine Teaching and do our duty in all things as in Thy sight. O thou who art alone Just and Right, a God of truth and without iniquity, watch over all we beseech Thee all near and dear to us, and all our fellow men wether white or black engaged in this deadly struggle. In Thy wisdom we pray thee, Merciful Father overrule Thou all events for good and in Thine own time restore to us and to those whose land we have invaded, the blessings of peace for Thy names sake declared to us in Jesus Christ our Lord - Amen"

This prayer was issued by the Bishop of Natal for use during the continuence of the Zulu War.
Natal Witness 21st January 1879
