I have never heard of this until now.

In 1879 Colonel Durnford took five troops with him to Isandlwana, where they fought well, shot their way out of the encircling Zulus, and covered the far bank of the Buffalo river to cover the flight of the survivors. They claimed that they wished to take Durnford with them, but he refused, preferring to fight to the death (as indeed he did). All contemporary accounts speak well of the work of the NNH, especially at Hlobane and Kambula, and in the reconnaissance work before Ulundi.

hi littlehand.
Fairly certain this is based on Durnford's Edendale Contingent which withdrew in order to the river and then managed
to fire well controlled volleys into the zulu's who were attempting to kill the fugitives . I have read where some of the survivors
said if it wasnt for the Edendale Contingent there may have been no survivors !!!!!.
cheers 90th.
