Final shots of the war? Empty
PostSubject: Final shots of the war?   Final shots of the war? EmptyTue Dec 27, 2011 1:57 am

Hi all,

There is an account by Lt. Curling in his letters home where he states in a letter dated 8th september 1879 that though the war was all but over, there were a number of zulu points of resistance still existing in the caves near Luneburg.
He says in his letter that plans were afoot to blow the caves with guncotton soon after, I presume not on that same day he wrote?

Ian knight in his National army museum work (chronology section) states that the last skirmishes were on 8th september 1879 near Luneburg.
Did further combat continue beyond 8th sptember, or was Ian Knight including the use of guncotton on the caves in his chronology?

Cheers

Matt
