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

Hi,
Just to say that, I could be wrong, but, judging by a lot of memmber's comments on the Zulu War, it seem's to me that quite a few of you have not actually been out to Zululand. Now, sorry if this sound's a tad rude, but also, a few of you maybe, let's say, not getting any younger! I see member's saying "Oh, I would love to go out to the Battlefields one day", etc, etc. My Dad recently died, and his dream was to explore the Normandy beaches associated with the D-Day Landings. He kept on putting it off, not because he couldn't afford to go, but just didn't get round to actually doing it. My point is, just bloody do it! If it's your dream, then fullfill your dream. Travelling around Zululand can be done extremely cheap. Don't put things off untill it's too late to do anything about it. If your well- off, don't forget, you can't take a penny with you when you peg out!!!
Sorry for going on!

It's not so much the cost. Flying scares the life out me. I have only flown once, and I hated every minuite of it a nd that was to Ireland i caught the boat back. So I'm resigned to the fact that I will never see the Zulu War Battlefields.

Runner2. Sorry to hear about the loss of your father. There are many of us that would love to visit the Battlefields, me for one. But with three kids a mortgage and living costs I have to get my priorities right. Idea

Classic. This thread had me in stitches! :-)

I'm just waiting for runner2 to inform us that he's running a bus to SA at a very reasonable rate. There you go Dave, you're now sorted ;-)

I don't have a fear of flying. I didn't mean to offend you, apologies if I did.

Dave. Try taking a plane. It's easier on the arms.
