Hi all, ADMIN in particular

I have a photograph from killie campbell, a low resolution close up of a burial party with picks at Isandlwana.
I have not seen this picture published previously, it is entitled 'burial party isandlwana' and I have noticed what seems to be the remains of a dead soldier (light shirt/dark trousers, against small rocks) at the feet of the man on the right.
It mentions nothing of the presence of a corpse and my eyes may be decieving me but I think not.

I have asked KC for a higher resolution copy and permission to publish it in full when it comes and they have said that my request has been passed to the department which deals with such things and I can expect a reply mid january 2012.


The KC site says images can be used for study and research purposes so long as the proper URL etc are attached and without further permissions and as this is a research/study site I presume it is safe to post the smaller image here prior to permission granted for the higher resolution image.
ADMIN, if the photo is as I see it, it is obviously of a morbid though not grotesque nature and so I thought it best to ask your permission first.
If you permit, I'll post the openly available image now and when clearance comes through from KC, I'll post the Higher resolution one.

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt
AS far as im aware there were only three photos taken at isandlwana by Frederick Lloyd in May 1879. One is of a single soldier leaning on a shovel in the waggon park. The second and third are more long distance looking over the neck, one of which shows cavalry in the middle distance.

Hi Matthew83,

I would be very happy for you to publish the Isandlwana burial party picture/s which you obtained from KCM.
Publishing the picture/s should not upset any sensitivities as I do not think it will be possible for anyone to be identified in it.
According to my records it took some time weeks, even months before any interments took place on the battlefields. In this regard the Natal Mounted Police where there first, doing what's right for their men who died there, but they were expressly forbidden from burying any of the 24th's kia's, as the Regiment wanted to do it themselves.
This may have been because they needed to positively identify as many men as they could before burial.

barry.

Cisco,

What do you reckon, It is in my opinion unmistakable, I'm surprised it hasn't been more widely published.

Hi DB14,

Yes, I too noticed the shield, a white one.
He is small, could be a drummer boy but likely a normal ranker whose remains have decomposed somewhat over the months that passed before the burial parties arrived, thereby making him appear smaller.

Who knows?

Cheers

Hi Matthew83

Thanks for pm giving web link to picture of burial party. It appears to be of unusual clarity for the time and I think many in this forum will have interest in it.

This photo appears in Ian Knight's book 'Nothing Remains But to Fight' & the opinion of the author is that it was probably taken at Pinetown at the end of the war.

Perhaps a show photo. Glad to see there is no signs of the Zulu custom of disembowelling.

The picture in Ian Knight's book quite clearly shows that the two "bodies" are Zulus, each with a convenient spear tucked under the arm ! Certainly a staged photograph.

Can't see why a burial party would have a photo like this taken? Almost like a trophy photo!  Don\'t agree

It is clearly a staged photograph as already mentioned.

The so-called burial party is under the command of Captain Alfred Godwin-Austen, 2nd/24th, wearing the 1878 star helmet plate on his helmet.  Some other interesting uniform and equipment detail appears in the photograph: the Colour-Sergeant's insignia on the soldier 4th from the left; the helmet covers worn by two officers and at least one other-rank; the Sergeant-Instructor of Musketry wearing a pistol and sword and the kneeling other-rank wearing the older pattern ammunition pouch with curved edge.

For the best printed version of the photograph see page 110 of Nothing Remains But to Fight.

Given that Alfred's clasp for 1879 was disallowed it is obvious that it taken nowhere near any fighting.

Hi All,
What bothers me about this midday shot of a supposed Isandlwana burial is;

1) the shot  was taken in late summer time
2) the terrain shown in the background is not that of the general Isandlwana area, however it could be down the trail.
3) the luxuriant flora  depicted in general in the background, but more particularly, and the big give away,  the presence there of  the "Natal banana"or strelitzia nicolai (Crane flower), a tree which is NOT found at the higher altitudes ( ie above 3000 feet), or in the Thornveld., but is endemic  in the lower altitude riverine and coastal dune forests throughout the region. No Thornveld acacia are visible in the background either.

So, based on all of the above Isandlwana does not appear to be the place where this shot was taken and it is probably a staged photo .

regards

barry

PS : Strelitzia nicolai is indeed very common around Pinetown
