PostSubject: Lt.W. Poole , Border Horse    Lieut. W. Pool, Border Horse EmptyFri Aug 26, 2011 8:17 am

Hi Mr.G.
I couldnt find my earlier post on Poole and Barton so here it is again , this from ' Blood On The Painted Mountain ' by Lock &
Quantrill ........ '' Somewhere in the flight from the mountain Barton came across Lt. Poole of the Border Horse alone and dismounted
At the risk of his own life , Barton took up Poole on to his already exhausted horse and together they rode on . With the Umcityu
drawing nearer and nearer but cautious of Barton's revolver . They were now about 8 miles from Potter's Store which until a few days earlier had been a holding depot for Wood's Irregulars and , presumably , a place still manned and guarded to the extent that it could
drive off a few mounted zulu . But , they would not reach their goal ; Barton's horse with its double load finally collapsed . The riders
sought escape in seperate flight but Poole was quickly overhauled and killed . Although Barton still had his revolver , it would not fire
and he waved it only as a threat . His pursuers closed in around him and drew his bluff ; he pointed the gun and pulled the trigger but nothing happened . Barton stood alone in the silence of the plain watching the man who had just killed Poole . He walked toward Barton and stopped . Placing his rifle on the ground , the warrior gestured that he should surrender . His name was Chicheeli and
as his king , Ceteswayo had given orders for a prisoner of some importance to be taken , he had decided to capture Barton .
It was an easy decision as he had already killed 7 white soldiers that day . The two men were close to each other and Barton slowly
put a hand to his head and raised his hat . At that moment another zulu approaching fired at Barton , who fell mortally wounded .
Chicheeli , believing the white man to be his prize and not to be killed by anyone else , stepped forward and speared Barton to death .
In due course Evelyn Wood wrote a letter of condolence to Barton's sister and next of kin , Mrs A Childers . Further on it mentions ....
'' Another burial party visited the mountain in September and reported that the remains of Barton and Weatherley had been found and put to rest . This report was false , no doubt made to pacify grieving relatives . Barton's Body was not buried until 1880 , after it had been found by Trpr Robert Browne DCM , who had been led to the spot by Cicheeli himself .



The following 'From Midshipman To Field Marshall ' by Evelyn Wood . '' Chicheeli told me that on Ityenteka nek he followed several
white men and killed them , one man , as he approached , turning his carbine and shooting himself . When he , with several others ,
got down on the plain , 7 miles from the Mtn , he overtook Capt Barton , who had taken up Poole on his horse .He fired at them , and when the horse , being exhausted , could no longer struggle under the double weight , the riders dismounted and seperated . Chicheeli first shot Poole , and then headed toward Barton '' We know what happened then , but Wood asks Chicheeli was he sincere
in wishing to spare Barton , '' Yes '' he replied , '' Ceteswayo had ordered us to bring one or two Indunas down to Ulundi , and I had already killed 7 men '' . After Barton was shot by another zulu , Chicheeli said '' I could not let anyone else kill him , so I ran up and assegaied him '' . Wood said '' Do you think you can find the body ? '' . '' Yes , certainly '' he said ; '' but you must lend me a horse ,
for it is a day and a half ''.. I sent Trpr Browne VC , with him next day , and , with the marvellous instinct of a savage , he rode within
300 yds of the spot where 14 mths previously he had killed my friend , and then said '' Now we can off saddle , for we are close to the spot '' and casting round like a harrier , came in less than five minutes upon Barton's body , which had been apparantly never been disturbed by any beast or bird of prey . The clothes and boots were rotten and ant - eaten , and tumbled to pieces on being touched. Browne cut off some buttons from the Breeches , and took a Squadron Pay Book from the pocket filled with Barton's writing,
and then buried the remains , placing over them a small wooden cross painted black , on which is cut '' Robert Barton , Killed in action , 28th March 1879 ,'' and then he and chicheeli buried the body of Lt. Poole .

In the footnotes , it says Chicheeli was reported as having been killed in Bambaata's Rebellion in 1906.
cheers 90th. Idea

PS. This grave or Poole's has never been found .

"Mr. Pool, who was Colonel Weatherley’s First Lieutenant, was one of the gallant bands who promptly responded to the call made for volunteers to go in and clear the rocks, from behind which the hidden Zulus were pouring a galling fire upon Colonel Wood’s main column. This they succeeded in doing, although some of our poor fellows were shot down at the first onslaught, the Zulus’ rifles almost touching their bodies as they fell. It was later in the day, after the Hlobane had apparently been cleared of the enemy, and the Border Horse were returning down the mountainside, that they were surrounded by the Zulu hordes, and Lieutenant Pool and his gallant companies fell victims to the fortune of war."
