Hook sustained a wound at the Battle of Rorke’s Drift from an Assegai. He claimed it caused him many problems in later life.

Is anybody able to clarify? In what way the injury caused him problems.

Was it nightmares or would it just not heal.

Thanks 90th for the quick responce.

I was just seeing if there was a connection between the red Indians and the Zulu’s.
The Indians supposedly dip the arrows in dung with caused the wound to become infected, which prevented the natural healing process for many years after. Did the Zulu’s do the same?

Dave good question.

“Biological warfare has been around for at least 2500 years. In the sixth century B.C., the Assyrians used rye ergot to poison enemy wells. In the fifth century B.C., Scythian archers dipped their arrows into animal dung to cause wounds to fester.”

Of course their spears would not have been the cleanest of implements.

Came across this.

" The biocontrol potential of Bacillus subtilis isolated from cow dung microflora was investigated in vitro and in vivo against two postharvest yam pathogenic fungi, Fusarium oxysporum and Botryodiplodia theobromae. B. subtilis strains inhibited the growth of F. oxysporum and B. theobromae in vitro in liquid medium in the range of 49.3–56.6% and in solid medium in the range of 31.0–36.0%, in comparison to the corresponding growth of fungi without bacterial inoculation. The interaction between B. subtilis CM1 and F. oxysporum was also studied by scanning electron microscopy. Chitinase production was demonstrated in vitro when B. subtilis was grown in the presence of colloidal chitin as the sole carbon source in a liquid medium. In vivo study showed that B. subtilis strains inhibited the growth of fungi (F. oxysporum and B. thobromae) up to 83% in wound cavities of yam tubers."

Im with you, us colonials are all the same. However having spent 4 hours with a dictionary Im able to translate it as: " a bit of crud got into the flesh and hurt him"

Hope that helps.
