Impi you are correct , LC did indeed try to run the whole campaign by himself , and to cut it short he did indeed forget to leave orders for Pulleine , Crealock and Clery realised this so they acted on it .

Even then the orders should have gone from Chelmsford to Glynn and then to Pulleine. Glynn knew what what was happening and should have imposed himself. Clery should never have been involved, by Glynn backing away orders were given to a (temp) camp commander by a junior officer ( one who was admonished for attempting to do the same moments before with Durnford).
Blame Gylnn.

Sounds like your still going to those swingers parties.

I remember you saying Glyn, had no choices as the 3 Column was under the command of The Good Lord Chelmsford.

Still consistant. Glynn was the one who should have been involved in the chain of command. The fact that he wasnt is down to Chelmsford usurping command.

I have sent a letter to Pete written by Clery regarding the going on's at Isandlwana , if you WILL take Clery's own words as the '' proof Positive '' you'll soon see that poor old Glyn never had a chance of being in command , because,  your good Lord Chelmesford as Springy says ,  '' Usurped him '' and its written there in Clery's words in black and white !!

CTSG it doesnt mean anything if Clery thought Glyn wasnt up to it , the fact is LC took over any command that Glyn held , with the exception of keeping the camp clean , a menial task at best for one of Glyn's rank I'd expect !

Perhaps you to should read the first sentence of the post inquestion!

You see Martin what is old hat, is when your pushed into a corner, you start having a rant taking the discussion off topic. You rest your laurels on a Historian, and Jackson's book is the only one you can relate to. It's been said many times, you don't have to contribute to a discussion if it is as you say old hat.

'Old hat' is the stuff that you and others keep using in your attempts to blame Durnford. You keep using this same 'old hat' nonsense even though it has been proved wrong, unreliable or even lies (ie; Crealock, Thomas, etc).

"Rest my laurels on an historian and Jackson"? Good god man, I have read many books by different authors on this subject, more than I care to mention, and maybe it would help you (and others), if you would only read and digest more on the subject and broaden your minds, who knows, it might help you to get over your obsession with blaming Durnford.

Hi OH.

What I mean by 'proved wrong', is the old, and ill researched material, that was later copied by many other authors and quoted as being fact. This sort of material has since been proved wrong by modern day and good researchers. For instance, Crealock said that the orders said that Durnford was to take command of or reinforce the camp, this was believed for years, but since the orders were found, and years later were painstakingly and carefully opened (they still had Col Durnford's blood clogging them up), it was proved that the orders did not contain what Crealock had said, yet many still believe and still quote that Durnford was to take command or reinforce the camp. So even though it has been proved wrong, it is still used by some people against Durnford.

Hope this helps.

Not a nice accusation to make! Maybe we will see a public announcement from you shortly. There are some very good authors out there.

But you stick with "Jackson" Martin. Who only wrote one book.

Look at the credits, and see who Jackson credits with helping him?

Hi Rascal.
Yes , I agree , but it's been known by many that Glyn had no say in what happened . Basically LC took over the 3rd Column.

Actually no he wrote two. I dont recall Hill of the Sphinx ever being critisised for being inaccurate, missleading or partisan. Why you should seek to denigate it therefore is strange.Or is it a case of the more books you write the more accurate you are? Saul Davids et al must be overjoyed that you aprove.

Le Major Clery wrote : "The General first ordered me to write to Colonel Durnford, at Rorke's Drift, to bring his force to strengthen the camp, but almost immediately afterwards he told Colonel Crealock that he (Colonel Crealock) was to write to Colonel Durnford these instructions, and not I "

Why the Colonel Crealock and not the Major Clery, LC did not trust ?

Best regards

Major Clery wrote : "but almost immediately afterwards he told Colonel Crealock that he (Colonel Crealock) was to write to Colonel Durnford these instructions, and not I. "

LC has changed his orders and did not write by Colonel Crealock, he would have written by Major Clery?

Best regards

The General, Lord Chelmsford ,who frequently sent orders direct to unit commanders,had not to give any to Pulleine; so Clery

(acting on behalf of Colonel Glyn but without reference to him or Chelmsford ) composed orders himself, sent them to

Pulleine,and takeld them over with him and his adjutant,Lieutenant Melvill, before riding out with Glyn,before riding out with Glyn.

Alas no copy of these orders survived the battle,but as Clery remembered them at the Court of Inquiry they were as follows:

" You will be in command of the camp during the abscence of Colonel Glyn;drawin" (I speak from memory)" your camp,or your line of defence"(I am not certain which) "while the force is out; also drawn in the line of your infantry outpost accordingly,but keep your cavalry still far advanced."

Source:

Clery,C.of I.

" What I wanted to convey," wrote Clery later,"was this-'keep a sharp look out with yor Cavalry. Get your Infantry outposts back closer to your Camp. Fight compact if you are attacked.Act stricly on the defensive and hold the camp."

Clery,report.

The Clery report came to light AFTER the battle , he no doubt put it together with the benefit of hindsight . He even states
something like '' I'm not certain which ? ''.

Read in the newspaper THE STAR, friday, January 19, 1900

Lord Wolseley has ever held Clery in hight esteem ...

The story run that had Clery's advice been followed they would have escaped ?

He advised Lord Chelmsford to fortify the camp on 24 th ...

Clery's suggestion been adopted,the massacre would not have occurred...

Cheers
