PostSubject: The news from Ulundi   The news from Ulundi EmptyThu Jan 14, 2010 12:00 am

04 August 1879 Commons Sitting
MR. O'DONNELL

"The news from Ulundi was that after that battle the Zulus were refused permission to take their wounded from the field, and every wounded Zulu was murdered by our Native Contingent. That might, or might not, be true. But they knew that the murder of women and children had been admitted and proved in recent Blue Books. The story might, therefore, be true; and it was sent by Dr. Russell, of The Daily Telegraph, of high authority, and one not likely to lead this country willingly wrong."

Doe’s anyone know what this is related to.

“But they knew that the murder of women and children had been admitted and proved in recent Blue Books.”

This sounds very interesting; I think we have discussed this sort of thing before, but the murder of women and children, has gone un-noticed until now. Just to help me along with a bit of research can anyone tell me what the Blue Books are and what they are reference to.

I believe they are official series of parliamentary papers from the late 18th century onwards.
