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

I take It KIA telegrams were sent, to the families of those killed During the Zulu War. Or did this practise only come-out during WW1.

If they were sent during the Anglo Zulu War. Does anyone have an image or a link to one. Salute

Hi Littlehand.
We may have discussed this previously and I'm fairly certain there were NO Telegrams issued to the families of those KIA
in the Zulu War . I think it may have been the Newspapers that issued casualty lists ? . Happy to be corrected .
Cheers 90th. Salute

Home page video. " Secrets of the Dead" A trunk is opened,containing letters, medals, newpaper articals. One of the letters is read out by the narrative, it's a letter from the deceased person's officer,who had written that the person had been KIA 22nd Jan 1879. So I guess there was a sort of telegram service back in those days. Watch the video let me know your thoughts.

I think it's Ian Knight discussing " Coopers" belongings.

I think your right Impi. He also states that many of the same letters were sent! However there were a lot of blanks in the letter, but at least an effort to let relatives know was made!
