Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Apparently someone called Sergant-Major Sharpe recalled that


Out of a thousand there were 6 officers, 14 non-commissioned officers, and 450 natives cut to pieces, including Colonel Durnford, who fought with his one arm like a true British officer. The last words he said, after pausing for a few seconds were -"Now men, this is our last escape: death or glory. God help us." He then gave the word, "Charge;" but before he got through the (next word unclear) a bullet entered his breast,..


Who was he ??

Was he even at Isandlwana??



Cheers
