Who said this "But I left a thousand men to guard the camp" Idea

And this one was a gem. "Unless you carry out the instructions I give you, it will be my unpleasant duty to remove you from your command,"

Here's a clue to the second quote. He didn't but he should have. Isandlwana was lost because he didn't.

This was said of Buller by Chelmsford.

Hi Springbok9.
Well done it is indeed the Good Lord at Ulundi , 1 more to go .
In Reply to your quotes I was going to say Capt Kirk for the first one but then decided we would be light years off track .
So I will go with Durnford and for the second Sgt W.E.Warren one of Harness's detachment who wrote in full . ' You could
not move a foot either way without treading on dead bodies. Oh , father , such a sight I never witnessed in my life before .
I could not help crying to see how the poor fellows were massacred ' .
cheers 90th.

90th
Trying to do this on memory without going through the library.
The last quote, Harkness was aproached by an officer that caused him to divert back to the camp with the artilery and support troops ( before he was ordered to carry on with his original course), pretty sure that was the message but cant quite put my finger on the author. Hamilton Brown?

hi sprinbok9.
Yes you are correct it was Hamilton - Browne writing to the Good Lord , this was the FOURTH MESSAGE he had sent off
to Chelmsford , and as you can see in the wording , Browne seems to be showing some frustration as he hadnt had a reply
from any of his previous THREE MESSAGES .
cheers 90th.

You Should all know these.

1) " For heaven's sake, don't take that, man, for it belongs to our Battalion."

2) " Get on, man; the Zulus are on top of you."

3) " The terrible disaster that overwhelmed the old 24th Regiment will always be remembered, not so much as a disaster, but as an example of heroism like that of Leonidas and the three hundred Spartans who fell at the pass of Thermopylae."
