I assume this is the one you are referring to.
“The Career of H.M.S. Shah, (Naval Brigade,) during The Zulu Campaign, being a Diary of Events compiled by G.H.W., Signalman.” Published in January 1880 in Gloucester by C. Jeynes. (Reprinted by the Anglo-Zulu War Research Society in Volume 7, Issue 2 of The Journal of the Anglo-Zulu War Research Society in 2001.)
