I was reading, an article a while back, It was in-connection with L.C. telling someone not to use Durnfords map as it was useless. Does anyone else recall reading this, if yes where was it.

If Durmford had made his own map, what happen to it? And why would it have been useless?

24th. On the 21st Jan 1879.

In a letter from L.C to Sir Bartle Frere.

LC states that they got around " Malakata Range" ( vide Durnfords map )

So my first thoughts are " The map wasn't that useless"

Source: Lord Chelmsfords Zululand campaign!

Will continue on.

ie, Durnford was attached to Shepstone's staff.it seems that
his job would be to make a rough map showing the progress
of the expedition into Zululand. judging from what appeared
on the map, he had to take note of the topography and the
environment , most probably with an eye to further military
activity.

The map is housed in the public records office,Kew ref MR 94

Durnford was a member of the Natal Boundary Commission set up to agree the boundary between Zulu lands and the Boer Farmers of the Transvaal in 1878. He produced a number of sketch maps of the relevant areas for the Commision and a complete map of Zululand which was published in September 1878. The originals are in the KwaZulu Natal Archives. Colour copies of the maps appear in The Boiling Cauldron by Huw Jones, available from the museum at Brecon.
