Littlehand,

Lieutenant Young's account is a pack of lies! It was discredited as far back as 1879.

Littlehand,

Lieutenant H.C. Young's account was discredited in a letter which appeared in 'The Natal Witness' of 16th May 1879, written by Lieutenant Walter Higginson, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Regiment Natal Native Contingent. Higginson was regiment's adjutant and he states that Young had gone on sick leave on 21st January 1879. Higginson's account was collaborated by an eye witness who stated that he saw H.C. Young in Sandspruit on afternoon on 21st January 1879.

Young's brother, Lieutenant L.D. Young, did die at Isandlwana, with the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Regiment N.N.C. Captain W.H. Stafford recounted how he was killed as he was attempting to save him.

Despite H.C. Young's account being debunked it still makes it into some recent material on the subject.

Crikey, some of these Victorian officers were disreputable, dishonest, sad pieces of work weren't they.
The more I learn, the more shocked I am at the behaviour, character, dishonesty and incompetence of these Officers.
The men, NCOs etc, as always - lions.

And why would Young completely fabricate an account like that? What was he seeking to gain?

Once again, well said Tasker.
Remember, the fish rots from the head.
Thus, if it was the practise of the day to protect ones reputation, by any means whatsoever, fair means or foul, little wonder that a false written order could be produced post the battle of Isandhlawana to protect the so called "reputation" of Chelmsford. As an aside, I personally think that Durnford may have been made to pay for the latters incompetence because of the formers link with the infamouse Colenso's.

Well said tasker

A saying springs to mind which I believe was very popular during the first world war

and that was,

LIONS LED BY DONKEYS

I think that saying could also apply to the Zulu war in some cases.

Well said everyone.
I feel that Chemie chose Durnford to be the scapegoat. Perfect candidate really. Not himself. Not a member of the 24th who had suffered enough. Possibly, as suggested his links to the Colensos. And dead.

Why would the Colenso link have irked Chelmie? Was it that they were against the war and sympathetic the the Zulus?

England was against the Zulu War. But!!

"Lord Chelmsford invaded Zululand without the knowledge of the British Government in the hope that he could Capture Cetshwayo, the Zulu King, before London discovered that, hostilities had begun."

PostSubject: The Colenso's   A witness to Coghill & Melville cutting thier way through the Zulu's EmptyTue Nov 08, 2011 7:15 pm

Hi Tasker,

Right on. Bishop Colenso was the Bishop of Natal, very pro Zulu. Often being outspoken in his support of them and being extremely anti British. I am surprised that he was not charged before the courts of the time with his
subversive behaviour. Now, the good bishop had three adult spinster daughters , all of whom were as subversive as he was, and one of whom, I think Nell, was reputed to be having a tete-a-tete with the good Colonel prior to the battle. The Bishop's errant behaviour was daily newspaper headlines in Pietermaritzburg the capital of the colony and the Colonists hated him with a passion because they saw him as a political instigator and saw him as the sole cause of the Zulus being restless.

The Bishop was repeatedly warned by the authoritiess and his superiors about his lack of patriotism and subversive behaviour and was eventually defrocked and sent back to England. So, what better man to blame for all his troubles, than Anthony Durnford, who had been fraternising with the enemy,(the Colenso's) especially as he was not around anymore to defend his case.

Barry

Durnford was put in the wrong place at the wrong time and consequently he suffered his fate because of the fool in command at Isandlwana.

Thanks for the reply Barry. That is very clear.
DB14, i took Chard to mean the fool Chelmsford! I am not sure that the fool Pulleine was very proactive at all in any respect.
