Zulu on Gatling Gun.  Empty
PostSubject: Zulu on Gatling Gun.    Zulu on Gatling Gun.  EmptyTue Apr 03, 2012 6:56 pm

"A Zulu on Gatlings — ^Ulundi and Nodwengu — An unlucky warrior —
Tall liaggling— Midnight at Ulundi^A Gblgotha.

"My camp was pitched within thirty yards of
the site of the famous hollow square and about
four hundred from that of Nodwengu, and the
morning after arrival I started to explore the ruins
of Ulundi, under the guidance of an old Zulu who
had formerly been one of the head men of the
Undakaombi kraal. At the bottom of the slope I
dismounted to examine one or two of the skulls
lying about among the grass, some being remark-
ably large and well developed ones. I drew my
guide’s attention to this, as he stood curiously
watching me. The old man smiled rather mourn-
fully and shook his head. ‘ Yes,’ he said, ‘ we lost
some fine men — numbers of them. What could we
do against you EngUsh ? You stand still, and only
by turning something round ^ make the bodies of
our warriors fly to pieces ; legs here, arms there,
heads, everything. Whouw! — ^What can we do against that. "
