A Zulu Boy's Recollections of the Zulu War Empty
PostSubject: Re: A Zulu Boy's Recollections of the Zulu War   A Zulu Boy's Recollections of the Zulu War EmptySun Nov 14, 2010 1:17 pm

We were told also that there was a soldier at lsandhlwana who carried a flag. He just waved it backwards and forwards. He fought not; he feared not (perhaps he put his trust in other soldiers). They killed him

I guess that this is the flag that was given the Melvill?

Thanks

We seem to have a double up of the same topic.

No reason not to believe Umsweanto about the flag. There is a another account of the flag being torn down from Chelsfords tent, that would I imagine be the Union Jack. Could it have been Private WIlsons account?

Cheers
