Hi all

In any volunteers units,by the time the first invasion commenced,Many crafty Declined to cross in Zululand and Remained on the border for Patrolling ...

So it was authorized by their rules?

These people (certainly medium), are known?

Cheers

Hi Springbok .

Pascal .
There are books written by those who served in the war in the Colonial forces , and they arent famous or VC wInners .

Hello and thank you both.

Yes they are volunteers ...

Imagine you both that I found it by chance and it blew me away!

Any volunteers have refused to participate in the first invasion scratch !

For me, it's amazing ... scratch ! But I guess it was their right ...

Given what happened, I guess they did not have a clear conscience and families of those killed were not too hold them in high esteem ...

Cheers

Pascal
