I wonder how many of the authors of the Anglo Zulu War 1879. Would like their finial rest place to be among those who died at Isandlwana.

I did say "crazy old man". Rolling Eyes

Possibly a few, I would expect over the years quite a few ashes have been cast into the winds over Isandlwana. With or without permission. Idea

I have a friend, strong believer in reincarnation who is convinced that he, in a prievious life, was killed at isandlwana. In his will he has requested that his ashes be scattered at a specific point on the battlefield.

Nowt as daft as Folk .........as they say.

An unusual topic. As Isandhlwana is pretty much a war grave I'm not sure I'd be comfortable with people mixing their ashes with those of the fallen. The men buried there were killed in battle and not by natural causes, which is the likely cause of those wishing to have their own ashes scattered on the battlefield. They don't belong.
