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

If anyone comes across an image of these graves please post.

"I showed him around some parts of the barracks, but of course he was especially taken by Paddy and Smiley’s graves.   They were of two old, British, Cavalry horses that had served during the Zulu   War and were at Isandlwana,  in Natal Province on 22 Jan 1879. They were with the very few who survived;  55 men out of a total of1329, all ranks."

Just found this. Now wondering what has become of the Graves!!

"Thursday, 29 January 2009 22:37

The army barracks in Longford closed this afternoon ending a 200-year military link with the town.

The closure went ahead despite several protests by locals, who expressed concerns about the economic impact of the move.

Soldiers have been based in Longford barracks since the late 1700s, but that long military connection has now come to an end.

The 130 troops marched through the streets of the town for the last time this afternoon, before they were relocated to Athlone.

Longford native and former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds attended the closing ceremonies.

Relatives of soldiers and residents conducted an intensive campaign before Christmas to keep the barracks open. However, the efforts of the campaigners were unsuccessful.

Troops from five military installations faced worrying transfers following October's Budget.

Over the last few days, posts in Lifford and Letterkenny have been shut down and Monaghan Barracks has also closed."

I must have missed this discussion last year, but I've made a few enquiries & have a photo of the gravestone - unfortunately however, the inscription tends to indicate that the two horses were not in the Zulu War;

Paddy & Smiler
Two Dearly Loved Friends
Died May 27 1873

I'll ask admin to post the photo for me.
