Hi All 

This account belongs here:

The Aberystwyth Observer 5th April 1879

A Welsh surviver from Isandlwana, - Edward Evans, of Llawryglyn, near Llanidoes, was one of the few soldiers of the 24th regiment who escaped from the Isandlwana disaster, writing to his mother on the 3rd February, he says, " Every day I have been running messages from the General to all the military posts on the Buffalo river," and " dear mother, don't grieve for me, for I am not to die in Africa. With the help of God, there are no bullets made to kill me".
Another Welshman, John Morgan, who was with General Lord Chelmsford on the 22nd January, concluded a letter to his brother, with the words, "Don't vex about me, if I die like a soldier " - A letter has also been received from Thomas Davies, of Llantrissant, who was on the 10th February, at Rorkes Drift.
