Try emailing the RE museum? It would be interesting to know exactly all of what they have relating to Durnford.

i'll try

I have heard they have his sword, trunk, papers, medal,some knecklaces he picked up in Zululand.


I don't see how a bullet could have been taken from his body, no historian makes mention of it Suspect

No. This was not what you might have called common practice, unless a post mortem was carried out.
