Hi Britelite .
Firstly welcome to the Forum and hope you enjoy your time here . Bourne did indeed to a BBC radio interview back in
the mid thirties , his Grandson has now released the transcript read by himself . Here is a link to it .
Several were indeed killed by assagai , These from that wonderful book by Julian Whybra '' England's Sons - A Casualty and
Survivors ' Roll of British Combatants For the Battle of Isandlwana Wed 22 Jan 1879 - And the Defence of Rorkes Drift Wed- Thur
22 / 23 Jan 1879 ''
William Horrigan , Robert Maxfield , Garret Hayden , Joseph Williams , Sydney Hunter , William Beckett and last but not least
an unknown Private of Mkungo's tribe who was a member of the NNC all listed as assagai being the cause of death .
cheers 90th .
ps. It seems during a clean up someone threw away the original tape from the BBC show a long time ago and no -one seems
to know when !.
