Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

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.
