Pascal, you say nonsense!

The Zulu, do not flush the bodies killed by bullets?

How could they do to see the difference, there was Medical Examiners among them ? :p;:

A man killed by firearms, by the Zulu, has the right to be torn open as if he was killed in hand to hand combat?

His watch was stopped by blood, ergo there was a lot of blood on his body. Dr Thrupp says in his book that

"the corpse apparently disfigured by only one long deep wound. "

It's weird, all Zulus passed beside his corpse did not know him, some think it has not been punctured because because Zulu knew him ?!

I wonder if the fact that he was killed by a gun-is important, for not having been punctured and you ?

He had a "Long deep wound" so clearly someone stabbed him.

So it has not been punctured, as it was well known and respected by the Zulu as Custer by Lakota and Cheyenne after LBH !

The Zulus said it was out of respect – Mehlokazulu I think it was.

Custer's body very slightly affected by the Indians, also because of compliance...

Although we are drifting to off topic.

"It's long been agreed that George Custer's body was virtually untouched, besides the two bullet wounds, either of which could have killed him. This has often been attributed to the Indians' respect for him, although it's also questionable whether they would have recognized him. His long blond hair had been cut short before he left Ft. Abraham Lincoln and he was wearing a buckskin jacket, not a miltary tunic. I have also read that his eardrums were pierced by some sort of long pins, which supposedly symbolized the fact that he didn't listen and would now "hear better" in the afterlife"

Didn't know he had a brother?

Durnford's last moments are not clear. he was believed to
have been shot through the heart, but his body was also
found to be covered with Assegaai wounds. ( me. not one
long wound ) he lay on his back-for some reason the Zulu's
had not stripped off any of his clothes-on the nek close to
the stony kopje,probably close to the Rorkes Drift road.

Around the fallen Colonel was a most poignant scene. Lieut
Durrant Scott and 14 of his fellow Carbinneer's,Natal Police-
men, Buffalo Border Guardsmen,Newcastle Mounted Riflemen,
Imperial and Black Infantry- lay scattered around him.
this sight led a Carbineer with the burial party to declare..

What struck everyone on the field was the way in which
the Carbineer's who fell stuck...to Durnford, of all men!

Hi Oh2.
From memory his brother Tom , I think won The Congressional Medal Of Honour twice ? . It is seen as the American equivalent of the VC . Also from memory Boston Custer was also killed at the LBH , not sure if he was a brother or cousin , I used to know but havent had much to do with the American West for a few years now , since I've been involved with the AZW . Sorry Pete for being off topic . Salute

Wheres's that from ? I looked for primary accounts on Durnford when i did a piece on him and i couldn't find a single one that
recounted the wounds on his body - apart from Thrupps account of taking the watch.

"The Road to Isandhlwana".

On page 230;

" Durnford's last moments are not clear. He was believed to have been shot through the heart but his body was also found to be covered with assegai wounds. He lay on his back - for some reason the Zulus had not stripped off any of his clothes - on the nek close to the stony kopje, probably close to the Rorke's Drift road. Around the fallen Colonel was a most poignant scene. Lieutenant Durrant Scott and fourteen of his fellow Carbineers, Natal Mounted Police, Buffalo Border Guardsmen, Newcastle Mounted Riflemen, Imperial and black infantry lay scattered around him."

But no source mentioned and he did have some of his clothes stripped off him, boots, knife etc.
