Once again the dreaded 22nd January is looming. Which will make the Battles of Isandlwana and RD 133 year ago. So what would have been the British movements on the 21st December 1878.

Hi Dave .
I can tell you that according to Philip Gon in ' The Road To Isandlwana ' '' By the middle of Dec 78 ' A , C , E & H Co's of the 1 / 24th
were at Helpmekaar. I can tell you they were also being soaked daily by Thunderstorms . The Cook , a Sgt Field says '' We meet every night with heavy rains , accompanied by Thunder and Lightning which continue till 6.00 in the morning . Private Owen Ellis
of the 1 / 24th said '' and sometimes it was Hailstones as large as a fist '' . Pvt Owen Ellis 25B / 312 1 / 24TH was KIA Isandlwana.
cheers 90th. 😕
