Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Eshowe was re-occupied as a fortified position known as Fort Curtis Empty
PostSubject: Eshowe was re-occupied as a fortified position known as Fort Curtis   Eshowe was re-occupied as a fortified position known as Fort Curtis EmptyFri Jan 29, 2010 8:17 pm

At the commencement of the Zulu War of 1879, Col Pearson’s No 1 Column fought an action against the Zulus at Inyezane on 22 January 1879 and then moved to the site of the Norwegian Mission where a fortified position which became known as Fort Eshowe (kwaMondi) was constructed round the existing buildings.

After sending back the mounted men and the Natal Native Contingent to Fort Pearson at the Tugela mouth the garrison, which consisted of the 3rd Foot (Buffs), 99th Foot, Naval Brigade, a few N.N.C., and a number of non-combatants, remained in the fort until relieved by Lord Chelmsford on 2 April 1879.The conditions in the fort were unhealthy and a number of men died of disease.

They were buried in this cemetery. After the Zulu War the British withdrew from Zululand and the cemetery was abandoned. However, disturbances caused Eshowe to be re-occupied and a fortified position known as Fort Curtis was established. This was on the knoll to the north east of the present rugby fields. The men who died during this occupation were buried in the original cemetery which accounts for the number of graves dating from the 1880s and 1890s. When the present Town Cemetery was established the military cemetery fell into disuse.

Just after the turn of the century when the Norwegian Mission (rebuilt at a new site), was active, the missionaries cared for the graves, and between the two World Wars ex-servicemen’s organisations took an active interest, supplying a number of name plates. During the 1950s and early 1960s the Natal Provincial Administration cared for the site but during the last 15 years it had become increasingly difficult to obtain labour for maintenance and the condition of the fort and the nearby cemetery began to deteriorate until the recent 'rescue operation’ was launched.

The following list of graves is compiled from
(a) Personal observation of Mrs R.M. Wilkins, Department of History, Edgewood College of Education, on 1.2.1977.
(b) Diary of Rev.C. Oftebro (only Feb - March 1879 burials).
(c) Record Book of Graves. Loyal Women’s Guild (Mr G. Chadwick’s Collection).
(d) Military graves in Natal (Mr G. Chadwick’s Collection).
(e) Hilton College Records.

Eshowe was re-occupied as a fortified position known as Fort Curtis Empty
PostSubject: Eshowe artifacts.   Eshowe was re-occupied as a fortified position known as Fort Curtis EmptyFri Jan 29, 2010 10:51 pm

hi oh2.
Quite possibly , but I would think they are from both periods , If you were going to be unscrupulous and
sell artifacts from the zulu war WHY would you pick Eshowe ? , makes more sense to say one of the Battlefields.
So for mine , I think they are from Eshowe , but from 1879 and some others from later all be it only a year or so,
Which means they were more than likely , used during 1879 anyway. Hope this makes sense :) .
cheers 90th.
