Fort Pearson, Lower Tugela, 14th March 1879, describes Birch's arrival at Durban, march to Stanger, and subsequent march to the Tugela where they entrenched with "5 companies of ours and a few of the 88th and mounted infantry on one side, and 3 companies of the Buffs and a Naval Brigade on the other in a fort built by the 99th called Fort Tenedos".

"We have heard of the terrible cutting up the poor 24th got .... The column to which we belong is hemmed in by the Zulus about 35 miles from here and between us and them there is about 15000 of the enemy ..... Naval Brigade just marched in and crossed the Tugela to encamp. We shall soon muster in good strong force for Cetywayo who is quietly waiting between us and Colonel Pearsons column ..... you will doubtless hear one of these fine mornings of a great slaughter on one side or the other - I hope it wont end in a repetition of the Isandhlwana affair".


"Durban, 16th September 1879. "The war is virtually at an end as far as Zululand is concerned, Cetywayo is captured". Birch describes meeting former soldier colleagues including "Larry Hogan - his services in the war have been very good, was present at the affair on the Zloblane Mountains, Battle of Kambulu and siege and capture of Ulundi, medal with 2 clasps and could have had the V.C but prefers a pension of 2/- "
