Just a suggestion.

Would it be of interest, if we complied A group of photographs of those that survived the Battle of Isandlwana. We have always said it's good to put a face to a name. May take sometime. But I'm sure we could do it between us.

Littlehands post of Clarke of the NMP gave me he idea.

Hi Sas1,
A grand idea.
I probably will be able to give pics of most NMP survivors and a more chronologically correct one of Tpr Clarke .

"Herewith an Isandlwana survivor's picture. The first of a number, which I plan on sending.
The dating of the photo is probably in the period 1922-26. The three men in civvies on the left, two of whom are wearing their battle ribbons and medals, are probably Troopers Shannon, Sparks and Doig. This id however is not certain and I would be happy for anyone who can firm up on the id, to make contact.
The uniformed officer on the right is Col Clarke late cc NP, in his retirement, aged in 1924, 64years.
The event and scene is an annual Isandlwana commemoration. In the background of the picture can be seen the slopes of the mountain".

The clean-shaved man, second from the right, is Charles Montague Sparks.

I'll check on the identities of the others when I get home.

"In the book "The Glamour and Tragedy of the Zulu War" by WH Clements, Trooper Charles Montague Sparks tells how he met Kincade sitting on the bank of a river after the Isandlwana Battle with his field boots in hand. He asked Kincade if he did not realise the danger he was in from the Zulus who were in hot pursuit. Kincade's replies were incoherent as if he either did not know or realise his peril or was dazed from the fight for his life in the river, where he too had lost his horse. Kincade then found a horse in the neighbourhood that had managed to swim across and land on the bank minus its rider. Sparks and Kincade then mounted horses and rode as fast as possible to the town of Helpmekaar"

Hi Littlehand,

The Col's uniform in the picture was that of the 2nd Regmt SAMR, of which unit he was OC after leaving the NP.
The two additional medals not mentioned in Brett Hendey's earlier post elsewhere in the forum are the OBE and the Star of St Stanislas (tie position). These two , as well as a second mention in despatches were awarded by Gen Ironsides, and signed by Winston Churchill whilst seeing action in a covert British Intelligence mission in Russia in 1918/19.
The first mention in despatches was awarded by South Africa's General Botha as a result of the 2nd SAMR's sucessful action in South West Africa in 1914/15.

Hi Elizabeth and Littlehand,

Yes, the picture was taken at an Isandhlwana memorial day in the early '20's, at Isandhlwana. I have no immediate knowledge as to the circumstances of the attendance of the the survivors there, but I will check to see if there is a mention in the diaries. I will revert on this Elizabeth.
I have framed copies of the two "mention in despatches" and they are listed in the official WO records . The medals are also in the possesion of the family.

PostSubject: Who qualifies as a survivor, a quick poll   Isandlwana Survivor photo's  EmptyMon Nov 21, 2011 3:40 pm

Hi All,

I am busy collecting pictures of survivors of the battles., but am not sure who to post. Let me know your opinion/s ;

1) firstly, do you want to see survivors of both RD and Isandlwana ?
2) Is a survivor anyone who came through those theatres of war, on those battlefields, on those day/s, or, only
those who manned the parapets at RD and also those who deserted, fleeing the Isandlwana and surrounding
battleground in terror ?.

The second question really focuses on Chelmsford, Dartnell and their column out probing for the enemy.

I think it should be those that were actually on the Battle field at Isandlwana but managed to escape.

I think that all your pictures are worth posting under separate headings, e.g. RD, Dartnell patrol etc.

Your posts on this forum are much appreciated by me and I look forward to them.

Macphail was at a gathering at isandlwana in the 30s. Looking at the photos taken then he seems to be wearing the same suit and waistcoat with fob watch. Medals are mounted behing the collar though not in front.
He doesnt seem to have aged in between so possibly your photo could be from the that era. The phot I refer to is in Zulu Rising opposite page 510.

Hi springbok69,

Thanks for attempting to put a date on the pic. Elazabeth Hogan has also asked this question, so following up I did some checking on all the Col's diary entries from 1922 through to 1928, when the diaries ended, but cannot find any entries about Isandhlawana commemorations in that period .
Indeed his activities on those anniveraries were such that he could not be there even if there were celebrations. Then it occurred to me that 1929 was the 50 year anniversary of the battle, and judging by the Col's ageing, he does appear to be 69 years of age in that pic.
So your guess at 1930, is very close. So much for the powers of deduction

thanks

I was just glancing through "Rope of Sand" looking for other info when I saw a photo of John Dunn in 1882, looks a lot like the man standing next to Macphail, a hang of a lot. Just after page 368, photo 51.

Sorry folks, senile moment, John Dunn died in 1895.

Can I ask where did you find the photo of the foursome? Is it in the Campbell collections?? And does it have an accession number?

Hi Julian,
Nice to hear from you.
In repjy;
That picture of the four comes from an original print sourced from the "Clarke Papers" in my possession. I have no knowledge of copies anywhere else. I will gladly email you a copy if so desired.

regards

Thanks Barry, good to hear from you too. And thanks for the offer to send the photo. No need to do so but just one or two more questions...Your reply above can be read in two ways. Is it the original print or is it the Clarke Papers that are in your possession? Or is it both?
If the Clarke Papers are not in your possession, where are they?

Hi Julian,
In reply;
The image posted by me was copied from a black and white photo print which is part of the "Clarke Papers"., ie the negative is not there, but would be found with the photographer. The Clarke papers are held by the Clarke family. They are not in the public domain. However there are other aspects of Clarke's work which are, ie
a) in the Nongai, The Natal Police Magazine. Articles on 1) a serialised history of the Natal Mounted Police; 2)The Royal visit by the ex Empress of the French.
b) A History of the Natal Mounted Police; Holt, 1906 ( this book was based on Clarke's dairies)
c) Killiie Campbell Museum ; My Career in South Africa by Col Clarke ( this is a very much abridged version of the diaries )
d) A Short History of the Natal Mounted Police by Inspector Clarke, 1893. ( this small booklet is very rare and only one other copy exists, that I know about.

Kindest regards,

barry

Many thanks for your clear and full explanation. I'm glad the Papers are in safe hands. Roy Dutton must have sourced the photo from elsewhere if not from you.

The man pictured second from left is definitely Trpr. Thomas Henry Cunningham, Newcastle Mounted Rifles who was on Chelmsford's Reconnaissance on the Mangeni. A comparison with a family photo shows it was him.

Hi Julian,
Dutton did not source a copy of the pic from me. I did however post it on the AZW forum some years ago. In doing so I would have trusted that the rules applying to use of it for educational purposes only, would apply.

Difficult to read but I think it says:-
Dugald Mcphail born 26 04 1840 (Invarary Scotland)
Died 4 -5-41 Dundee Natal. One of 17 who survived the battle of Isandlwana 22-01-1879.
Great Grandfather of Mariella(?) who started Penny ....(?)

Not much on the AZW but it does state who one of the wagons used in the perimeter defences at RD belonged to.

Hi Frank
If I remember correctly the owner (?) of the Pennyfarthing Guest house passed away in the last 2 or 3 years ? , so I assume it's no longer open for business ?

Foy Vermaak was the owner Gary, but the family is still running it.

Should have added that Foy's wife was descended from Dugal Mcphail, Foy himself was a long standing battlefield guide
