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

Anyone ever heard of this before.

"July 4th The cool manner in which the Infantry behaved whilst standing the press upon their ranks of thousands of these semi-barbarians and the half smile on their faces when (after taking steady aim) their shot took effect was amusing. Some instances of good swordsmanship were also remarkable. One officer cut a stalwart Zulu warrior completely in halves, another officer after narrowly escaping a serious assegai wound thrown with such force and precision as to go through his cloak and into the wallet of the saddle, severed the head from the hapless fellow who [threw] it."

Hi all .
I'm sure this question was asked somewhere on the forum but this is as good a place as any for this post .
From the Diary Of Lewis Reynolds . Part of his entry for 11th July .
'' The Zulu's at Ulundi came much closer than is generally believed - they came within 28 yds of the 21st Regt , when the
sappers reinforced them - the Gatlings were working at a range of 150 yds most of the time '' .
cheers 90th.
