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

With A.N.Z.A.C. Day coming up next week, I got thinking....were there any Australians involved in the Anglo-Zulu War?
And yes, I know that the A.N.Z.A.C. Legend didn't actually start until WWI....specifically 1915 when the Australians landed at Gallipoli, but it's a day to remember Australians in all Wars these days :-)
There are quite a few, “In the did they or didn't they take part in the Zulu section”. But these could have been Brits that ended up there in later years, perhaps there were a few soldiers of fortune, from Australia who fought in the Zulu War.

Hi All . As mentioned by Capt Mostyn there were no Australian units during the AZW . There are a few individuals , but I dont know any details of them except for Archibald Stewart who was from South Australia , not sure if he was born there or not . Stewart was Killed at Hlobane , I may have put the details of his death on here previously ? . Cheers 90th.
