Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

"TELEGRAM FROM MAJOR GENERAL THE HON. H. CLIFFORD TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR, WAR (ST. VINCENT, JULY 23, 1879):—
"Following received from Chelmsford:—'Cetywayo not having complied with my demands by noon yesterday, July 3, and having fired heavily on the troops at water, I returned the 114 cattle he had sent in, and ordered a reconnaissance to be made by the mounted force under Colonel Buller. This was effectually made, and caused the Zulu Army to advance and show itself. This morning a force under my command, consisting of the 2nd Division, under Major General Newdigate, numbering 1,870 Europeans, 530 Natives, and 8 guns, and the flying column under Brigadier General Wood, numbering 2,192 Europeans and 573 Natives, 4 guns, and 2 Gatlings, crossed the Umvolosi River at 6.15, and, marching in a hollow square, with the ammunition and intrenching tool carts and bearer company in its centre, reached an excellent position between Unodwengo and Ulundi about half-past eight. This had been observed by Colonel Buller the day before. Our fortified camp on the right bank of the Umvolosi was left with a garrison of about 900 Europeans, 250 Natives, and one Gatling gun, under Colonel Bellairs. Soon after half-past seven, the Zulu Army was seen leaving its bivouacs and advancing on every side. The engagement was shortly after commenced by the mounted men. By nine o'clock the attack was fully developed. At half-past nine the enemy wavered. The 17th Lancers, followed by the remainder of the mounted men, attacked them, and a general rout ensued. The prisoners state that Cetywayo was personally commanding, and had 1097 made all the arrangements himself, and that he witnessed the fight from Lickazi Kraal, and that 12 regiments took part in it. If so, 20,000 men attacked us. It is impossible to estimate with any correctness the loss of the enemy, owing to the extent of the country over which they attacked and retreated, but it could not have been less, I consider, than 1,000 killed. By noon Ulundi was in flames, and during the day all the military kraals of the Zulu Army and in the valley of the Umvolosi were destroyed. At 2 P.M. the return march to the camp of the column commenced. The behaviour of the troops under my command was extremely satisfactory. Their steadiness under a complete belt of fire was remarkable. The dash and enterprize of the mounted branches were all that could be wished, and the fire of the Artillery very good. A portion of the Zulu Forces approached our fortified camp, and at one time threatened to attack it. The Native Contingent forming a part of the garrison were sent out after the action, and assisted in pursuit. As I have fully accomplished the object for which I advanced, I consider I shall now be best carrying out Sir Garnet Wolseley's instructions by moving at once to Eulongamite, and thence towards Kamaguasa. I shall send back a portion of this force with, the empty waggons for supplies, which are now ready at Fort Marshall.
§ "'I beg to forward a list of casualties:—Killed.—2nd Division—Captain Wyatt-Edgell and Farrier Sergeant Taylor, 17th Lancers; Corporal Tompkinson and Private Coates, 58th Regiment; Private Kent, 94th Regiment; Trooper Sifona, Shepstone's Horse.

The original sepia watercolour sketch of “The Battle of Ulundi”, produced for “The Illustrated London News” by their ‘special’ artist Mr Melton Prior. A fine representation of his first-hand experience during the Battle which took place on July 4th 1879. The painting, 60cm x 46cm within a recent card mount, gives graphic detail from the British Square perspective with Lord Chelmsford and his Staff to the centre, with soldiers going about their duties and tending the wounded, with three wounded Zulus and a dead Dragoon and horse in the foreground, plus Sir Evelyn Wood, companies of the 80th and 90th Regiments, Lancers, Zulus and Ulundi in the background. Signed “Melton Prior 1879”. VGC, framed and glazed (some chipping to frame) Together with an etching of the original sketch as folded pages of “The Illustrated London News” issue of August 23rd 1879 as pages 172-3 and titled “The Zulu War: The Battle of Ulundi: Inside the Square”, this mounted and perspex framed 55cm x 40cm with text giving details of the personalities involved and general information relating to the Battle. Subtle differences can be detected on close examination as the artist has added his own interpretation. Note: The Battle of Ulundi (4th July 1879) was the last major battle of the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. The British Army finally broke the military power of the Zulu nation by defeating their main army and immediately afterwards capturing and razing the capital of Zululand, the royal kraal of Ulundi. Following the arrival of reinforcements from England a second invasion of Zululand began on 3rd June with 15 Imperial infantry units, in addition to units from the Royal Artillery, Royal Engineers and Natal Native Contingent.. The British 1st Division was to advance along the coastal belt in support of the 2nd Division, which was to march on Ulundi from Rorke’s Drift and Kambula. Cetshwayo was still hopeful for an end to hostilities dispatching envoys to the British. These reached Chelmsford on 4th June with the message that the Zulu king wished to know what terms would be acceptable to end the war. A Zulu speaking Dutch trader was sent back with terms in writing. Two days later jittery British troops at Fort Newdigate opened fire on an arriving piquet company of Royal Engineers only to find it was commanded by Lt John Chard of Rorke’s Drift defence fame. By 16th the slow advance was given more urgency with the news that Wolseley was on his way to Natal to take over command from Chelmsford. Wolseley cabled Chelmsford on the 23rd ordering him not to undertake any serious actions but the message wasn’t delivered until the 28th when Chelmsford’s column was 17 miles from Ulundi. Chelmsford had no intention of losing the opportunity to restore his reputation severely tarnished by the overwhelming defeat at Isandhlwana and did not reply. A second message, sent on 30 June, stated “Concentrate your force immediately and keep it concentrated. Undertake no serious operations with detached bodies of troops. Acknowledge receipt of this message at once and flash back your latest moves. I am astonished at not hearing from you”. Meanwhile the Zulu envoys reappeared, (their reply to Chelmsford’s demands had not reached the British commander), and they arrived with some of the British demands, however, Chelmsford turned them away as all demands had not been met and informed them that the British advance would be delayed by 1 day to allow the Zulus to surrender one of their regiments. Cetshwayo again tried for a peaceful settlement supplying 100 white oxen from his own herd as well as the Prince Imperial’s sword, taken when the Prince was killed on 1st June, but the gesture failed when the Zulu umCijo regiment refused to let the oxen pass. On 4th July the battle of Ulundi took place. By 7.30am the British column had set up a square, at about 8.45am, the Zulu army attacked but received a withering fire from the British artillery, which included Gatling guns, and were cut down in vast numbers. Chelmsford then sent out the 17th Lancers, under the command of Colonel D.C. Drury Lowe, to persue the survivors and the conflict was effectively over. The Royal Kraal at Ulundi was then burned. Wolseley finally took over command on the 15th July"
