Dave. This by. By Dr Adrian Greaves Chairman Anglo Zulu War Historical Society:

Quote :
"A most interesting book; well written and certainly worth buying. Lieutenant Wilfred Heaton was serving with one of the reserve Companies of the 24th Regiment in South Africa where he kept an account of his experiences during the epic year of 1879. Never published before, his diary is a fascinating insight into the life of a young regimental officer on active service who was close to many of the major events taking place at the time. His personal recollections are skilfully brought to life by the author, himself a senior army officer, and discuss many events documented by professional historians. This book adds a most useful social dimension to the wealth of material already published on one of the most dramatic colonial wars to have taken place in British military history. By Ian Knight Zulu War Author and Broadcaster: A new and fascinating angle on the Anglo Zulu war. Brian Best Chairman The Victoria Cross Society A moving tribute to bravery."

Ankle generally OK thanks, but I fear my Olympics hopes may be dashed for ever ! The Museum was very sympathetic and made me come into work despite the plaster cast !!!! Still, things were worse at Isandlwana !
