"This was what happened to us, among whom were men of the 24th, Natal Carabineers and Mounted Police. Some had dismounted, but I sat on my horse, which stood quite still, I think from fright, and fired away so long as I had any ammunition. With my very last cartridge I killed the Captain Indudu who had been in charge of the escort that conducted me to the Tugela. Colonel Durnford had been behaving, as a British officer should do. Scorning to attempt flight, whenever I looked round I caught sight of his tall form, easy to recognize by the long fair moustaches and his arm in a sling, moving to and fro encouraging us to stand firm and die like men. Then suddenly I saw a Kaffir, who carried a big old smoothbore gun, aim at him from a distance of about twenty yards, and fire. He went down, as I believe dead, and that was the end of a very gallant officer and gentleman whose military memory has in my opinion been most unjustly attacked. The real blame for that disaster does not rest upon the shoulders of either Colonel Durnford or Colonel Pulleine".

Rider Haggard I think from his book Finished about fictional adventurer Allan Quatermain's experience at Isandhlwana.

I seem to recall that Haggard's book called Finished is available to read online, so may be an opportunity to see the above mentioned quotation. As an aside, rumour has it, Haggard did meet Durnford, or at least knew him well-enough to express his own opinion about him, but as he worked in Shepstone's staff, couldn't say anything directly, but managed to hint at his own thoughts about Col. Durnford by including them in his novel, through one of his characters.
