AN ALCAIC ODE ON THE RETURN OF THE
VOLUNTEERS.

Rejoice o friends! This is a festal day,
The gleaming sun once more dispels war's gloom
Which brooded lately o'er Natalia's land;
Up! Give your Carbineers a welcome home.

Now is it meet to shout a glad applause,
For brothers, husbands, sons, safe home again;
For friends kept scatheless in that wild affray,
Give three good ringing cheers with might and main.

What if your voice grows hoarse? Spare not for that;
Let the hills echo back how our brave youth
Recked not the perils of the late campaign,
So they might guard their country. For in truth

'Tis but a little while since dire suspense,
And war's alarms beset both hearth and home,
The Zulus threatening, and ourselves in doubt,
Some dangers present, others soon to come.

But that man fears dishonour more than death,
Whom freedom nurtures with sure trust in God;
He goes unflinching through opposing troops,
And blenches not at war's uplifted rod,

Brave because true. So our too trustful lads,
Valour, which knows not how to cringe or fly,
Beckoned right on to danger and to fame,
And left them all to suffer, some to die.

Forget not how amidst yon notes of joy,
Bleeds many a woman's silent aching heart,
Whose lips no more one other's lips may meet,
Nor to his ear love's tender words impart.

Ah! Why recall to mind that fateful day
(The sun himself turned sickening from the sight),
When overwhelmed, not beaten, our brave band
Yielded their lives in internecine flight.

None can forget the furious torrent force,
The reckless courage of the Zulu host,
Nor how a noble pair the colours saved,
By their own death, nor grudged the fearful cost.

Where sleep the brave, the Cross reveals our hope;
Those lofty guardian rocks rear high their heads,
A lingering breeze sighs sweetly through the bents,
The neighbouring bush a hallowing influence sheds

With songs of bird. Let no rude step profane
These sacred precincts. Traveller, pause-awhile;
They who lie here died for their country's sake,
Their memory shall enjoy their country's smile.

Self sacrifice ne'er dies. And still when down
The stream of time our record disappears,
Will Isandlwana to our sons proclaim
The noble exploits of our Carbineers.

Maritzburg, August 1st 1879.

PostSubject: Re: The Natal Carbineers   The Natal Carbineers EmptySun Feb 27, 2011 6:41 am

I have the medal that was worn by Sergeant John Hutton (third from right, the man seated on far right). He was an 18 year old Trooper during the Zulu War. He later settled on the farm Bedford near Creighton in the Natal Midlands. He died on 11/10/1920. I have not tried to find his grave, but I suspect it would be in Creighton or on the farm.

I was very interested in the poem , which I had not seen before. One line that struck me was:
The sun himself turned sickening from the sight.

Does this refer to the eclipse during the battle? I remember reading that the coincidence of the battle and the eclipse was only recognised many years later and that no contemporary accounts mentioned it. Since the poem dates from 1879, this is clearly not so.

Regards
Brett

PostSubject: Re: The Natal Carbineers   The Natal Carbineers EmptySun Feb 05, 2012 1:34 am

The Natal Carbineers Regiment is an Infantry regiment of the South African Army. As a reserve unit, it has a status roughly equivalent to that of a British Territorial Army or United States Army National Guard unit.
South Africa, 1879 

The Natal Carbineers participated in the invasion of Zululand in January 1879, and on 22 January, 23 members of the Regiment perished in the famous battle of Isandlwana. The unit was subsequently relegated to garrison duties at Landman’s Drift on the Mzinyathi, or Buffalo River.
South Africa, 1899-1902 

In September 1899, the Natal Carbineers was mobilized for active service in the British campaign to subdue the Boer republics of the Transvaal and Orange Free State. The Regiment served until October 1900, when the Natal Volunteer Forces were demobilized. Some men continued their service in the Volunteer Composite Regiment until the end of the war in May 1902.
Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal: From 2 November 1899 until 28 February 1900 the bulk of the Natal Carbineers was besieged in Ladysmith, and played a prominent part in that famous siege. The most prominent military action was the attack by Colonial Forces on the Boer artillery emplacement at Gun Hill on the night of 7-8 December 1899. The Regiment lost heavily from the diseases that ravaged the garrison. A solitary squadron of the Natal Carbineers, the Estcourt-Weenen Squadron, avoided the siege of Ladysmith, and instead participated in the relief operations of Sir Redvers Buller. This squadron’s most notable military action of this period was the disastrous battle of Colenso on 15 December 1899, when four men were killed. These were the most serious losses for any one action during the Anglo-Boer War.

Natal, 1906 

The Natal Carbineers saw extensive service in the Natal (or Bambatha) Uprising of 1906. From February to July 1906 the Regiment participated in the numerous sweeps and drives through the mountainous terrain of Zululand, as the Natal Colonial forces sought to trap and destroy the elusive ‘rebel’ warriors. The Carbineers were present at the decisive battle at Mhome Gorge on 10 June, where the back of the uprising was broken.
South West Africa, 1914-1915

The Natal Carbineers, then known as the 1st and 2nd Mounted Rifles, was mobilized on 23 August 1914. Both battalions saw service in German South West Africa, while the 2nd Battalion was also involved in the suppression of the short-lived Afrikaner Rebellion of 1914.
Gibeon: The climactic battle of the South African campaign in German South West Africa was fought at Gibeon Station on 25 April 1915. The Carbineers lost two men killed in the engagement.

East Africa, 1940-1941

On 17 July 1940 the 1st (Royal) Natal Carbineers sailed for Kenya as part of the 1st South African Brigade. Their destination was the Italian colonial empire in East Africa. For the next 10 months the Regiment participated in the South African advance through Italian Somaliland and Ethiopia, until Italian resistance was broken at Amba Alagi in May 1941.
El Wak: The first major engagement of the East African campaign for the Carbineers was fought on 16 December 1940 at the Italian border post of El Wak, on the northern Kenyan frontier with Italian Somaliland. The Regiment lost its first World War II casualty, Sergeant Athol Paton, in this otherwise successful clash.
The Juba: The Juba River was the Italian Army’s major defensive line in Somaliland. Several actions were fought during January and February 1941, at Gobwen and Giumbo, but the period is best remembered for the disastrous ambush on 22 February of a Carbineer patrol at Gelib. Twelve men lost their lives.
Kombolcha: The engagement at Kombolcha in Ethiopia on 22 April 1941 followed the occupation of the capital city, Addis Ababa in March. The fighting at Kombolcha was distinguished by a daring nocturnal route march to successfully outflank Italian mountain-top positions. The battle honour awards refer to the general period 17 to 25 April.
Amba Alagi: Italian resistance in East Africa was finally crushed when the mountain fortress of Amba Alagi, between Dessie and Asmara, was successfully stormed by British and Commonwealth forces that included the 1st Royal Natal Carbineers. The Italians surrendered on 17 May 1941, and this battle honour refers to the period from 11 to 19 April.

Western Desert, 1941-1943

Following the fall of Italian East Africa in May 1941, the 1st South African Brigade was dispatched to North Africa to confront the joint Italian-German forces in the see-saw offensives across Egypt and Libya. The Carbineers earned numerous individual battle honours between June 1941 and January 1943 when it sailed home for a well-earned leave.
Sidi Rezegh: The 1st Royal Natal Carbineers played a small part in the disastrous battles in the vicinity of Sidi Rezegh in Libya during late November 1941, between the 19th and 23rd. These actions formed part of Operation Crusader, the British of November-December 1941, intended to relieve the first siege of Tobruk.
Taieb el Essem: The Carbineers was a component of the 1st Brigade force that held a defensive box south of Sidi Rezegh. On 24-25 November 1941 this force repelled a heavy German armoured assault.
Bir Sciafsciuf: This minor engagement in November 1941 pitted a small Carbineer component against an enemy convoy in the vicinity of Sidi Rezegh.
Gazala: The Gazala Line, to the west of Tobruk, established in early 1942, was a series of connected strong-points intended to blunt a German thrust towards Egypt. Carbineers formed part of the garrison of this line from March to June 1942, when they were forced to retreat after a German breakthrough and the fall of Tobruk. The major highlight of the Gazala sojourn was the patrol on 5 June where Sergeant Quentin Smythe earned the Victoria Cross.
Point 204: This little-known clash occurred in the Alem Hamza area of the Gazala Line on 5 June 1942. The single company involved suffered heavy casualties in a clash with Italian troops. Among the six killed was H.P. Masterton-Smith, the 1931 Comrades Marathon winner.
El Alamein defence: Following the breaching of the Gazala Line and the fall of Tobruk, British and Commonwealth forces retired to El Alamein, not far from Alexandria. Here a comprehensive series of defences were prepared. In July 1942 the Carbineers played its part in denying the Germans the breakthrough here that they needed to attain victory in this theatre.
Qattara: On 26-27 July 1942 a detachment of the Carbineers was involved in this subsidiary action in the Alamein defensive battles of July 1942.
El Alamein: The Carbineers played a small but eventful part in the huge and decisive Second Battle of El Alamein in October-November 1942. The Carbineer participation was confined mainly to the initial phase launched on 23 October.

Italy, 1944-1945

The 1st Royal Natal Carbineers landed at Taranto, Italy, on 20 April 1944, just in time for the latter phases of the battles for Cassino. From there the Regiment fought its way up the Italian boot, through Rome, until final victory in May 1945.
Cassino: The task of breaching the German Gustav Line, straddling southern Italy, was dominated by the mountain position of Cassino, under assault since January 1944. The Carbineers entered the fray in May, and it was on the night of the 9th-10th of that month that the Regiment’s first casualty in Italy, Corporal J.S.P. Airey, was killed. The Carbineers was active on the Cassino line for several weeks until 21 May. This battle honour refers to the general period of 11 to 18 May 1944.
Paliano: Two companies of the Carbineers were involved in this action along Route 6 during the advance from Cassino to Rome, as German forces fought several rearguard actions.
Bagno Regio: Bagno Regio was a hilltop village north of Rome, and on the night of 12 - 13 June 1944 elements of the Carbineers scaled a precipitous rock face to effect its capture.
Città della Pieve: The action at Città della Pieve occurred during the period 16 - 19 June 1944 on the Allied advance north of Rome. Two companies of the Carbineers lost eight men killed.
Florence: Following the fall of Rome on 5 June 1944 German resistance stiffened in the vicinity of Florence, and during June there were several sharp actions, such as those at Bagno Regio and Chiusi. The battle honour covers the period from 17 July to 10 August. This activity was followed by a period of rest during August.
The Greve: The action at the Greve, a river north of Rome, was fought over the period 24 July to 2 August.
Gothic Line: The Gothic Line was another of the German defensive lines that straddled the boot of Italy as the Allied armies pushed relentlessly northwards from Rome in mid- to late-1944. The Gothic Line Carbineer battles fought in the effort to breach it, and thereafter, have entered the Regiment’s hall-of-fame: Monte Vigese, Monte Stanco, Monte Pezza, and others.
Monte Vigese: Monte Vigese was a seemingly impregnable rocky eminence occupied by entrenched German forces. On 6 October, however, in driving rain and poor visibility, ‘A’ Company, under Major Peter Francis, performed the virtually impossible and drove the defenders off.
Monte Stanco: On 10 October, at Monte Stanco, the Carbineers suffered one of its few reverses of the Italian campaign, when it was compelled to abandon this hard-won feature. Captain Jacko Edmonds earned the American Silver Star for gallantry for his part in this action.
Monte Pezza: Monte Pezza was the next peak in the Gothic Line to be tackled by the 1st Royal Natal Carbineers, on 17 October.
Po Valley: Following a long and hard winter in the snow-bound Apennines, the campaign to drive the Germans out of the rest of Italy, the fighting entered the Po Valley, and the Carbineers once again played a significant part in operations from 19 to 30 April 1945.

South West Africa/Angola, 1976-1989

The Natal Carbineers saw service in a counter-insurgency capacity in northern Namibia (South West Africa) for three months from August 1976, and thereafter in numerous modular deployments over the next decade.

Hi littlehand,

Thanks for the interesting post on another almost forgotten unit comprised of "Natal boys", the Carbs.
They always fought very well and had/have a very good reputation, right up until recent times, serving with distinction in the 'bush" wars in the '80's. Drafts for this unit were drawn from across Natal, but mostly the Durban/ Pietermaritzburg areas.

Hi all

I think it was them who had the most beautiful uniform of the white colonial cavalry of Natal.

In the photo, you can tell they wear their grades, only on the right arm, interesting for me in the future ...

Cheers

Pascal
