(This book was written by the Principal Medical Officer of HMS Active immediately after the war in 1880 while he was serving as Fleet Surgeon in charge of the Naval Hospital at the Cape of Good Hope. The first half of the book tells of the wars in 1877 and 1878 at the Cape. The latter half is about the “Active’s Naval Brigade in the Zulu War. The book is available to read online.) “Fearful Hard Times, The Siege and Relief of Eshowe, 1879” by Ian Castle and Ian Knight.

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.)
