Thank you for the 'welcome aboard', and for the Shah Memorial link. Being an old navy man I have developed an interest in the men of the Naval Brigade of the Zulu War. I am looking for any information such as diaries, photos, letters, military correspondence, etc. that will help give me an incite into these men. They contributed greatly to the war effort by providing men to help build forts and erect ponts to transport troops across rivers. They brought ship's guns, gatling guns and rockets which proved useful in defeating the enemy. Members of the Naval Brigade were at Isandlawana, Inyezane, Eshowe, Gingndlovu, and Ulundi. Any information that can be provided to help me in my research is greatfully appreciated.
