And the last?

Salute

Hi Pascal .
The first deaths in action were Lt Raines & Lt PLatterer and 6 others at the start of the Nyezane Battle , the last from memory were Corp Pomfrett and Sgt Maj Smith when blowing up caves in Sept if I remember correctly . Salute .

Yes I think one of the Colonials drowned while swimming in the River , another chap was either drowned or as some think was taken by a croc in the Tuglea before the actual invasion . Pascal , I think wanted the names of those who were the first killed in action and the last to die in action . Thats what I've given him . Very Happy

Hi DB .
16th Jan Trpr . Arthur Dixon , who could not swim , had been dragged into a hole by the current as a party of the Newcastle Mtd Rifles had gone to bathe in the river . Despite a desperate search by his comrades , his body had yet to be recovered . Pascal
is asking about the First & Last BATTLE Casualties !. This has been discussed previously . Source ; Zulu Rising .
cheers 90th.

On reading Pascals initial post I see he hasnt stipulated whether it's Battle or Accidental Death . Certainly the last two are Smith & Pomfret . Not sure if the chap who went missing in the Tugela was before the 16th Jan , I somehow think he was as it may have occured on the 11th or 12 th Jan .
cheers 90th.

Hi all

Thank you all, that's true I'm so obnibulé by Isandhlwana that I had forgotten to Nyezane which started at 8.00 am.

Of course I referred to killed in action, otherwise die in this war is so stupid ...

By cons I knew there was a species of crocodiles in South Africa, but I thought they were not large enough to kill a man, I thought it was pissivors.

It be gobbled up by a crocodile in war, that's original !

Salute

Pascal

The Red Book
Just came across an interesting snipet from the Red Book (page 53), which is a compilation of Natal Press reports from the Zulu war, compiled by Ron Lock and Peter Quantrill, concerning Lt Raines, headed 'Lieutenant Raines', it goes on to say, 'This gentleman who was killed in the engagement on 22nd Inst, between Colonel Pearson's column and the Zulus, was well known in Durban. He arrved here some two or three years since, and afterwards went to the Gold Fields, from whence he proceeded to Delagoa Bay, where he was attacked by fever, and came down to Natal for a change. Whilst in Durban, he obtained a lieutenancy in the native contingent, of which, had he been spared, he would no doubt have proved a valuable and brave officer. The deceased was well connected, and was a gentleman of much intelligence'.
The 'Special Correspondent' descibing the action (page 51) tells us of finding the bodies; 'One poor fellow, an Englishman , was litteraly riddles with assegai wounds. The writer of this has a copy of "Sacred Songs and solos sung, by Ira D Sankey," taken from his pocket. It is saturated with his blood, and has been pierced by an assegai in two places. Outside are written the initials A.U.P.C'.
Anyone have any knowledge of the initials or what happened to the book?

Hi All.
It isnt an established fact that the chap that fell into the Tugela was indeed taken by a croc , it is assumed so , as they never found the body !.
Cheers 90th. Suspect
