Charles Robson (Orderly) accompanied Chard on his return to England. Even attended with Chard when he had his audience with Queen Victoria. Robson had in his possession various Zulu weapons, which he had, remove from the dead Zulus at Rorkes Drift. I have read that there are some Weapons and Shields at Osborne house that were given to the Queen, would these have the same weapons that was brought back by Charles Robson. I’m spending a week on the isle of White in September and plan to Visit Osborne House, as anyone seen the weapon display and could they advise if its worth the visit.

Hi OldH2

I have not seen the weapons & shield at Osbourne House, I do know that it costs £10.90 each to get in.

While you are on the Isle and if you fancy trying to locate a grave of a famous Zulu War person and the grave has not been photographed to date, it may not be marked anymore. Please PM for further details.

hi oh2.
There is a photo in Brave Mens Blood of one of the shields at Osborne house by Ian Knight. A collegue contacted me in
regard to the zulu items at Osborne house , he said last time he was there , they had 3 large shields on display in the swiss
cottage which is an outbuilding to the main house . He said they were taken from Royal Homesteads around oNdini after the
battle of 4th July , he believe's they were presented to the queen by officer's of the 13th Regt . In his view well worth a look.
cheers 90th. :) .

Admin. I spend a day there around the same time. I did look but couldn't find the Zulu Shield in question. Thanks for the photo.
