Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

"On 20th December 1878, HMS Tenedos, under the command of Captain Edward Adeane, moored at Durban. On New Year's Day 1879, she landed a force of 3 officers and 58 men, led by Lieutenant Anthony Kingscote. They marched to the mouth of the Tegula River and joined the contingent from HMS Active. The men from Tenedos crossed the river and, along with men from 'The Buffs' and the Royal Engineers, built Fort Tenedos on the Zululand side. It was from this position that they joined Colonel Pearson's (of 'The Buffs' - the 3rd Regiment of Foot) No.1 Column in the Zulu War in January 1879. The column, a force of around 4,000 men included a Naval Brigade made up of 270 seamen and marines from HMS Active and HMS Tenedos equipped with two gatling guns and two 24-pounder rocket tubes."

John Young and Isandula,  Thank you both for the photographs of Kingscote.

Isandula, Thanks for the Letter and the "Rules and Bye-Laws of the Naval and Military Club."  Do you know what the notations are on the page opposite Rules and Bye-Laws?  I can't make out the signature at the top. Directly under the signature is 1879.  Below the date are two words I can't make out, and below the it appears to be "when in Ekowe."  I don't think Kingscote made it to Ekowe. He was with the Ekowe Relief Column and present at the Battle of Gingindlovu, but I have found no record of him being present at the actual relief of the fort.

The exact wording is as follows:

Lt. Kingscote
1879
Checked actually when
in Ekowe

So it seems Kingscote says he was in Eshowe sometime or the other.

I guess his being in Eshowe is something we will have to put in the category of one of those little mysteries of the Zulu War.  Kingscote's service record has no mention of him being there, and nor does the "War and Meritorious Service" section of the "Navy List".  Maybe one of these days we will find out.
