Matin
There are immense gaps in the knowledge of your oponents in this debate. That credibility evinced by their total inability to produce a cogent argument or answer without resorting to inanities or insult. Go back over this thread and you will find, hardly to your suprise, that not one question posed has actually been answered. Instead any consideration posed, by any number of forum members, has been derided and discarded without any attempt to answer and when pressed replied to with personal insults.
I put it down to inbreeding!

Hi springy.

Thanks for your support mate, much appreciated.

You are right, I have been back through this thread quite a few times, and all the evidence says that David Jenkins was indeed one of the defenders at RD. But like you say, all this evidence is either derided, ridiculed or rubbished by some of the doubters, yet they never put forward a proper answer as to who they think the other Pte Jenkins was at RD, and nearly always reply with some sort of insult, which just shows the level of their mentality.

Why, you and Mate are not in agreement with Julian ?

Again this has been said many times

Chard said 11 people of the 1/24th were at RD, we know the names of 10 of them, who was the 11th ?



Thats the question. Many are submising its David Jenkins. But there is no real proof that states "DAVID" There is a good argument for him being there, but nothing that actually puts David at RD or Isandlwana?

24th
Your quite correct, so far, there is no piece of paper that states David Jenkins was at RD.
However as in any legal argument, the weight of evidence is sufficient to prove guilt/innocence.

So let me again itemise the evidence 'for,' and ask you to answer the questions posed.

Who was the 11th un named soldier refered to.
Why would Chard lie in mentioning David Jenkins.
Explain how J Jenkins could be laying in his bed, incapacitated, see Reynolds account, and was killed there, see Smiths account have got out of bed run around through a hail of bullets, fought along side Chard and then run back?
Why would he be in possesion of a bible, inscribed by the good ladies of Durban.
Why would his comrades acknowledge him on arrival In England as a defender of RD.
Why would he be introduced to the Duke of Clarence, in front of his entire Regiment, as a defender of RD
Why would he be introduced by his regiment to King Edward as a defender of RD.
Why would he be acknowledged by Lord Butler.
Why would he have been detailed by his regiment to attend on Lady Butler.
Why would his wifes 'warmest regards', be past onto him by Lord Butler.

So far the evidence 'against'

Innuendo trying to prove Jenkins was not there by virtue of his service record. Proved wrong
An attempt to prove that the bible wasnt genuine
An attempt to explain the bible a being a forgery
An attempt to explain away Jenkins not being in Natal
An attempt to implicate the Ladies of Durban in wondering around the keyside looking for bags to tuck bibles into and finding the wrong bag............. doesnt explain the dedication.
An attempt to accuse the museum staff of malfeasance.
An attempt to do the same to various historians.
An attempt to have Kris Wheatley included as a doubter................ she denies that 100% and gives full support to David Jenkins.
A feable attempt to show one Jenkins wasnt so sick that he couldnt have done his olympic dash back and forwards.
An attempt to throw doubt on Lady Butlers veracity.

David and Adrian wrote an essay outlining their reasoning and like any accademic paper had to be put to the test, and it has been and found wanting in certain areas. Sufficiently so that it deserves a responce. That responce hasnt been forthcoming, except for an expected short statement from Elizabeth that is. Considering the debate that has gone on and the repudiation of a lot of the points raised by them one would expect them to have been only to willing to answer those critisisms with some hard fact. That they havent would put them in the same situation as an accused in the 'dock' and the oft attributed judges remark.........The jury should draw what inference they feel they must.

I look forward to your comments.

Regards

Hello

In 1991 after the list of Toby Giese, he had a patient in the hospital of 1/24 th named, Pvt 841 James Jenkins killed in the hospital ...But no David Jenkins ?

In the Campaign book No. 41 of IK is the same conclusion ?!

It's Good ???

Gadzooks springy, that's tellin' 'em. :p;:

It reminds me of a few good old sayings, which I know you will also remember. Salute

'In like a Terrier'.

'Pick the bones out of that'.

'Put that in your pipe and smoke it'.

'Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war'.

There are other sayings I could mention, but I will leave it at that. Very Happy

Best regards mate. agree

Hi all

On January 12, 1879... After taking the village of Sihayo, the third column is left with 10 Zulu prisoners intact and 4 zulu wounded and also prisoners .

Who escorted the prisoners, where and when?

Just been watching the tennis, but Springbok's post? I would say that is game set and match!

impi seems to have dug himself into a hole so deep, he is unable to get out of it and he is not receptive to any of the evidence to show David Jenkins was a defender.

Dave's poll to gather forum members' opinions by way of a vote, also back fired, with a resounding landslide of a "YES" vote in favour of David Jenkins being at Rorke's drift.
Only 2 (two) forum members were of the opinion that "NO", David Jenkins was not at Rorkes drift. Does anyone know who these 2 members might be?:p;:

Impi this is probably old hat by now but your post of Wed 26th june is Chard's first report on RD .
His far more elaborate and comprehensive report for Queen Victoria was compiled on the 21st Feb 1880 .
It is in ' Rorke's Drift by Those who were there ' by Jones & Stevenson , it runs from page 18 - 34 . Assuming YOU believe he ( Chard ) wrote the report in the first place ! . Also Chard Mentions Pte Jenkins saving his life , wouldnt one think if this Jenkins was the one who died in hospital , Chard would say so ?? . Something like '' Jenkins got me to duck , then the poor chap was killed in the hospital " .

Hi 90th.

Exactly. How could a man that was debilitated and delirious with fever, suddenly recover enough to run from the hospital, fight alongside his mates, give Chard the "duck down Sir" warning, then run back to the hospital and suddenly become debilitated and delirious again, where he is then killed by the zulus. It just doesn't make sense.

Hope you enjoyed your break mate, did you get a sun tan? :p;:

Gents you can post whatever you want relating to Pte Jenkins. But you have nothing to show he was at RD, until such times your welcome to speculate as much as you want? I can't see any point in adding to this discussion, now awaiting JW information.until then nothing more from me on this topic. Salute

Impi

What nonsence is

"you have nothing to show he was at RD."

Chard clearly says his full name and credits him as being at RD. There are also lots of other things that place him
there, why ignore them ?

Go back over this thread and you will find, hardly to your suprise, that not one question posed has actually been answered. Instead any consideration posed, by any number of forum members, has been derided and discarded without any attempt to answer and when pressed replied to with personal insults.
I put it down to inbreeding!

DB16
I dont think that Chard ever refered to David Jenkins. Just Prvt Jenkins. Because there was no other (suviving ) Jenkins around at the time, and wasnt untill the reinforcements arrived, David has been the only candidate.
Ulundi I hope that answers your question.

Ulundi.

According to an earlier post by Julian (way back in this thread), the letter written by Col Sgt William Edwards is kept at the museum in Brecon, and Julian states that he has seen this letter personally (so no problems there with it's authenticity).

I don't think a copy of the letter is on the forum, and Bill might have problems with the copyright regarding posting it.

I am not sure, but a copy of the letter might well be in the book 'The Red Soldier, letters from the Zulu War 1879' by Frank Emery.

Alternatively, watch out for Julian's new publication, as with all the new information that Julian has acquired regarding Pte David Jenkins, it might well appear in there.

impi, clearly you were not serious in making the above remark? May I suggest you re-read Springbok's post of 26th June, 2.25pm. It summarises all the known and existing evidence linking David Jenkins to Rorke's drift.
Whilst I agree with you and get it that you think that this is not Forensic Quality evidence, which would place DJ at Rorkes drift "beyond all reasonable doubt," it is certainly a rather weighty collection of circumstantial evidence, which WOULD be more than sufficient to hold up in any Civil Court in the land on the "balance of probabilities."
If we were to apply the "beyond all reasonable doubt" Criminal Court requirement to all stories or supposedly known facts about this small war, there would be really very little left!!!Salute

Your quite correct, so far, there is no piece of paper that states David Jenkins was at RD.
However as in any legal argument, the weight of evidence is sufficient to prove guilt/innocence.

So let me again itemise the evidence 'for,' and ask you to answer the questions posed.

Who was the 11th un named soldier refered to. No one knows?
Why would Chard lie in mentioning David Jenkins. The question has been asked many times, Where does Chard Name David Jenkins
Explain how J Jenkins could be laying in his bed, incapacitated, see Reynolds account, and was killed there, see Smiths account have got out of bed run around through a hail of bullets, fought along side Chard and then run back? All though he was incapacited he still managed to crawl through loop holes.
Why would he be in possesion of a bible, inscribed by the good ladies of Durban. Read Ian Knight essay
Why would his comrades acknowledge him on arrival In England as a defender of RD. Speculation
Why would he be introduced to the Duke of Clarence, in front of his entire Regiment, as a defender of RD Speculation
Why would he be introduced by his regiment to King Edward as a defender of RD.Speculation
Why would he be acknowledged by Lord Butler. Speculation
Why would he have been detailed by his regiment to attend on Lady Butler. Most of the other defenders were overseas, perhaps he volunteered as he was in the Zulu War
Why would his wifes 'warmest regards', be past onto him by Lord Butler.Speculation.

Where i have written Speculation I could be wrong, however if you can provide evidence from a primary source that what you say is correct, i will apologise!!!

So far the evidence 'against'

Innuendo trying to prove Jenkins was not there by virtue of his service record.   Proved wrong
An attempt to prove that the bible wasnt genuine
An attempt to explain the bible a being a forgery
An attempt to explain away Jenkins not being in Natal
An attempt to implicate the Ladies of Durban in wondering around the keyside looking for bags to tuck bibles into and finding the wrong bag............. doesnt explain the  dedication.
An attempt to accuse the museum staff of malfeasance.
An attempt to do the same to various historians.
An attempt to have Kris Wheatley included as a doubter................ she denies that 100% and gives full support to David Jenkins.
A feable attempt to show one Jenkins wasnt so sick that he couldnt have done his olympic dash back and forwards.
An attempt to throw doubt on Lady Butlers veracity.

David and Adrian wrote an essay outlining their reasoning and like any accademic paper had to be put to the test, and it has been and found wanting in certain areas. Sufficiently so that it deserves a responce. That responce hasnt been forthcoming, except for an expected short statement from Elizabeth that is. Considering the debate that has gone on and the repudiation of a lot of the points raised by them one would expect them to have been only to willing to answer those critisisms with some hard fact. That they havent would put them in the same situation as an accused in the 'dock' and the oft attributed judges remark.........The jury should draw what inference they feel they must.

I look forward to your comments.

Regards

No one attemping to do anything that you say. It was suggested that David Jenkins Redication and acceptence as a defender was a bit premature, based on there was no documented evidence to support it. We know the argument for him being there is good, but not, but not good enought with regards to primary evidence!

I think is a bit odd, that Pte David Jenkins himself never claimed to have at been at Rorkes Drift! The only account he left, gave the impression he had taken part in the Battle of Isandlwana. scratch

And does anyone know why? The original roll of honour cannot be revised.

And just how did he get from Rorke's Drift, to Pietermaritzburg so quickly? He would not have left on the 23rd Jan.
Is there any mentioned of other RD defenders from the same regiment, going Pietermaritzburg or did he go alone.

24th
No speculation mate all fact. During the course of the discussion the newspaper articles reporting the meetings were either reproduced or referenced. They are all source material and as they are from different newspapers I think we can rule out any collusion.
24th we are debating, no appology is required or wanted ( a simple and humble grovel would be good.Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy )
AS Ive posted to DB16, Chard never mentions David, merely Jenkins. As Ive posted the only other Jenkins was killed in the Hospital ( no mention any where of him crawling around.) It is documented by Reynolds that he was incapacitated and by Smith that he died in the hospital. There is no way at all that he could have moved backwards and forwards. I posted some time ago photos of RD one in particular from the position of the biscuit box wall looking at the hospital. Its a big distance, not a space that an 'incapacitated man' could navigate twice under fire. Therefore the man on the walls refered to as 'Jenkins ' by Chard could not have been James Jenkins, its an impossibility. Once that fact is accepted there can, by a process of elimanation, only be one other Jenkins in the vicinity. And only one Jenkins that suvived. Its not therefore a giant leap of deduction to pinpoint the identity of the other 'Jenkins'.
Ive read Ians article, at no point does he deny the bible. Ians whole aproach is to outline what he considers the situation and let you make up your own mind.
Julians about to produce some other facets so I do not want to interfere with that, he has given a strong hint in the early stages of this debate, so on that really tantalsising snippet I will leave you for a while.
Im out of action for a couple of week.

Cheers

The letter was marked PMB, that does not mean to say he was there.
Jenkins did claim to be there.
Cheers

No speculation mate all fact. During the course of the discussion the newspaper articles reporting the meetings were either reproduced or referenced. They are all source material and as they are from different newspapers I think we can rule out any collusion.
24th we are debating, no appology is required or wanted ( a simple and humble grovel would be good.Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy )
AS Ive posted to DB16, Chard never mentions David, merely Jenkins. As Ive posted the only other Jenkins was killed in the Hospital ( no mention any where of him crawling around.) It is documented by Reynolds that he was incapacitated and by Smith that he died in the hospital. There is no way at all that he could have moved backwards and forwards. I posted some time ago photos of RD one in particular from the position of the biscuit box wall looking at the hospital. Its a big distance, not a space that an 'incapacitated man' could navigate twice under fire. Therefore the man on the walls refered to as 'Jenkins ' by Chard could not have been James Jenkins, its an impossibility. Once that fact is accepted there can, by a process of elimanation, only be one other Jenkins in the vicinity. And only one Jenkins that suvived. Its not therefore a giant leap of deduction to pinpoint the identity of the other 'Jenkins'.
Ive read Ians article, at no point does he deny the bible. Ians whole aproach is to outline what he considers the situation and let you make up your own mind.
Julians about to produce some other facets so I do not want to interfere with that, he has given a strong hint in the early stages of this debate, so on that really tantalsising snippet I will leave you for a while.
Im out of action for a couple of week.

Cheers

No mate not fact! It's your speculation, regarding newspaper reports, which we were told to take with a pitch of salt, by JW in other discussion. Newspaper are not primary resource material. Here say! It was you who stated David Jenkins was named by Chard, no one else. The only " fact" there is, is you have nothing that confirms David Jenkins was at RD. it's best to wait for Julians publication.rather than reading the rubbish that is being posted. Julian will be providing facts!!

Don't you your newspapers to suit your needs!

This Colour Sgt Edwards letter. Does it actually state " David Jenkins"

Or just Jenkins.

Because James Jenkins was also of the 1st 24th and at Rd. How do we know Edwards wasn't referring to James Jenkins. .
