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 see your banishment is over. You fed up with the RDVC again.


PS. Did you have a luck with your life size model of Col: Durnford.

I am not Colin.
He shares many similar views as me but I have never really met him.
I am eager though to continue to interact with members here about how my hero Col Durnford should not be villified for the loss at Islandwana. I have been greatly reassured by long discussions with Peter Quantrill about my viewpoint so I feel there are experst who share my point of view. I recently met Peter's duaghter at a fineral of a mutual friend's wife and through her made contact with Peter.
Chelmsfordthescapegoat I am glad to see you are still posting and defending your hero. That is what these forums are all about vigorous debate and the exchange of ideas.

I do not collect life size models. I do have quite an extensive toy soldier collection with many AZW figures including my hero Durnford. Perhaps if you ever come to visit the battlefields you could swing past my house and I coudl show you my toy soldier version of Rorkes Drift and Islandwana. I coudl also show you my AZW library which I am quite proud of. It would be nice to chat to you about our different understandings of these great events.
Your friend
