Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Thank's John & 90th for welcome looking for ward to discussion's

I went to Kwazulu a few years ago to see the Battlefield's Rorkes Drift and Isandlwna and found i got a better prospective then you do when you read the book's.
Especialy Isandlwana and the vast area sweated like hell just walking part of fugetives trail God know's what those Escaping felt in their kit.
Down on fugetives drift the river was almost dry and not the raging torrent they faced i was able to sit on coffin rock with no problem of getting wet feet.

Hi Billy
Was is a package tour or did you go on your own back. What I mean did you walk the Battlefields with a tour guild like David Rattay.

Like most on here I have never been to SA. But hopefully one day.
I’m glad you described the weather conditions, as it must have been a terrible time for those making their way to the Buffalo. The British uniform of that day was not exactly the ideal kit to to wear.
Can you remember how long it to you to get from Isandlwana (Battle Scene) to Coffin Rock.

HI 24th
I Actualy went out with 6 other guy's our tour guide was Paul Macleveney and a jolly good one to After walking down Fugetives trail for about a mile or so just to see how the land changed rapidly we headed back to the Van on turning you could not even see the Mountain as tall as it is thats how the land drops there.
so we actualy cheeted got in the van and followed the road to Isandlwana lodge via the Nquatu Range to get a Zulu View of the Field from there we went down from the other side of the river about a mile and a half walk to coffin rock on the way you pass where the grave of Lt's Melvill and Coghill lay quite a way from the river not like in Zulu Dawn the film where they were killed on the river bank Those guy's must have gone through hell just getting across that terrain as well as the onslaught they had faced.
We actualy took our uniforms out there and did some photo shoot's at Roakes Drift and Isandlwana to the amazements of other tourists not expecting to see Redcoat's
