PostSubject: They were really at Isandhlwana ?   They were really at Isandhlwana ? EmptyFri Feb 15, 2013 9:17 am

Hi all

The Zulu regiments Mbubi, amaShutu and amaKwenke ,were really at Isandhlwana ?

I'm reluctant to include these regiments within any formal list without the reinforce-ment of any firm primary (Zulu ) or secondary sources .

The only writer worth including here is A.W.Lee ,sometime Bishop of Zululand , who in his book published in 1949 ( Lee ,op.cit.,p.74.)recounted his experiences and meeting with various Zulus including Mehlokazulu in the early years of the twentieth century and it ought be remembered that bishop Lee lived and worked among the zulus , and wrote , albeit thirty years later ,from the vantage point of first - hand meetings with warriors who participed in the events of 1879.

There is another author who mentions these three regiments as being present at Isandhlwana ?


Cheers

Hi Rascal .
Mbubi ( iMbube ) if they are the same unit they formed part of the right horn at Isandlwana according to Ian Knight in Zulu Rising .
I've found the other two you named , but cant find if they were at Isandlwana or not . Very Happy
Cheers 90th . Salute

Hi Marsupial

After Lee, they were all three at Isandhlwana, and after other modern authors, none of the three were Sad Sad Sad

And why they would not have the right to be there?

Hi Rascal .
As Springbok and I have said to you over the last year or so , the information you seek more than likely doesnt , or never existed in the first place . After all , it was only a 6 month war against a perceived primitive opponent . Those involved would never have believed in their wildest dreams that this small war would have the fascination it does 134 years on !
