Following the Isandlwana battle and the news reaching England that the 4 band boys who had been killed there , and the ugly way in which they met their demise ( tied spreadeagled to a wagon wheel and disembowled: or gutted like sheep), it was decided by the WO to no longer to send children ( the youngsters in question were between 13 and 17 years of age) into harms way in this fashion.
Does anyone have the date on which the change, ie forbidding children on the battleground, was promulgated by the WO.

regards

As far as i'm aware drummer boys were not allowed to enter into battle areas as a direct result of Isandlwana. So I'm assuming it changed in 1879.

So the fate of the drummer boys was not a myth? There's a discussion thread on here about this somewhere.
