Some members have been having difficulty purchasing copies of this book, which is a fascinating personal account of life on active service with the 24th Regiment of Foot during the campaign. The second edition, which includes a tribute to the late David Rattray is available from The Royal Welsh Museum in Brecon at £14.95p. Phone 01874 613310 for more detail.

Hi Rodney. Am I correct in saying you are the author of this book.

This was one of the first books I brought.

Quote :

"

Absolutely correct. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the Anglo Zulu War 1879.

What is this book about, i have loads of books on the Zulu War, all covering and saying the same thing, so I'm cautious when it comes to buying books connected with the Zulu War 1879. No doubt llike a lot of members on the forum. Question

CTSG. Understand want you mean, however this book is from a Lieutenant of the 24th Regiment of foot ( Lieutenant Wilfred Heaton) who kept a dairy of the events he witness during his time served in the Zulu War 1879.

There are lots of illustrations of Wilfred, and his diary starts from Wesnesday the 1st of January 1879. So covers the whole event so to say. Its an eye- witness account of someone who was there. As we like to say on this forum, a primary a count. Like I have said before, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Anglo Zulu War 1879. Trust me you won't be sorry. If you disappointed in anyway with the book I will buy it from you for the priced you paid, and I will pay from the posteage. Salute

You make a valid point, but the difference in this case is that Lt Wilfred Heaton's Diary is a hitherto unpublished primary source document, written on the spot at the time the events were taking place, without any political or historical bias. A young officer of the 24th Regiment who was in one of the reserve Companies held back at Helpmekaar, Wilfred kept a personal diary of life on campaign which adds a social dimension to the wealth of material published on this fascinating subject. Ian Knight describes the book as "a new and fascinating angle on the history of the Anglo-Zulu War" and there are a number of independent reviews on Amazon under the book title, which in full is - For Queen and Country, the Zulu War Diary of Lt Wilfred Heaton, 24th Regiment of Foot, 1879. I hope this helps.

Hi Rodney .
When I saw you had joined I was wondering if you were the author / editor of the Heaton Diary , Welome aboard and hope you enjoy your time on here . Salute
I'm with Littlehand I also have it - and have read it twice !. As CTSG intimates there are many books on the zulu war and most do have the same things in them , thats why I look for Diaries etc as they are what the individual saw and felt so therefore no two are the same !. Diaries or Autobiographies
are the way to go !. If I remember Pete the Admin was chasing this book for a while and eventually managed to get one . You need to study mo .
Cheers 90th Salute
