PostSubject: Lt Charles Cavaye   'Zulu Victory' EmptyThu Nov 10, 2011 4:50 pm

Hi Littlehand,
Cavaye is mentioned in many pages in Zulu Victory, from page 6 right through to page 326. However on page 203 appears the following;

.... Up on the Tahelane crest, the Zulu right horn was still steaming past Cavaye's company at about 800 yards , like so many moving targets on a shooting range , when the retreating NNH burst into sight. The came around and over the Magaga Knoll a mile away, closely followed by the packed regiments , the uNokhenke and mCijo of the Zulu chest. At that movement Cavaye must have realised he would no longer be dealing with a passing parade of distant Zulu warriors and he sent an orderly leaping down the pathway to Degacher with a request for reinforcements . Yet the rank and file were full of cheer enjoying themselves as the blazed away at the far-off foe.

Degacher was dealing with the biggest challenge of his life . A hazardous situation had evolved in what have must of seemed to have been a matter of minutes . Above the Tahelane crest, he could hear Cavaye heavily engaged but could see nothing. To his right front the juggenaut- like Zulu army was drawing closer. Still keeping Younghusband's company in reserve , Pulleine ordered Degacher to send Mostyn's F Company scurrying up the ridge to reinforce Cavaye, and a mounted orderly to the camp for extra ammunition.

Thanks Barry. I don't suppose there are any times given. No worries. It gives me an avenue.
