Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Can anyone define "Missing In Action" in the Anglo Zulu War. I find it hard to see how anyone went missing in action, unless they deserted. I have read 54 were recorded as missing in action. I can understand thIs meaning in WW1 & WW2 due to the weapons used in that period. But the Zulu War when all the enermy had was handheld weapons. Perhaps it's just me but I cannot see how they went missing.

PS. Zulu's missing in action. I can understand bearing in mind the weapons the British had. ( Artillery )

Impi. Perhaps it was those who were unluckily enough to get captured and disposed of by the Zulu's I do recall reading that body parts were used in doctoring Zulu warriors. It which case they would have been dismembered bit taken the rest buried or burned. Just a thought.....

Hi all

And those that were not found in the body can be considered as disparus.Cette expression was not in use at that time, at that time, no body = death ...

Yet with Mr. Grandier ...

Cheers

Pascal
