A friend of mine as sent this to me via e-mail. He assures me that the photo was taken during the Zulu War. He knows the title of the photo by will not tell me. Basically he saying lets test your forum member’s knowledge. I really don't have a clue. I’m personally not convinced it is Zulu War. There seems to be someone the left wearing a top hat. Anyway any ideas??????.

hi Littlehand .
Your friend is correct it is indeed a photo from the zulu war , It's Fort Chelmsford built on the banks of the Nyezane River .
The River is behind the camera , the ditch on the left appears to be for drainage purposes.
cheers 90th.

Brilliant..Thanks for the quick reply.

A contemporary photograph of Fort Chelmsford, KwaZulu, taken in 1879, at about the time it was in use by 57th.

The Photo actually belongs to the Zulu War Historian. John Young Idea
