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

PostSubject: Karkloof Nature Reserve    Karkloof Nature Reserve EmptySun Dec 08, 2013 8:09 pm

"This steep flat topped area of indigenous forest stretches from Rietvlei to Curry’s Post, a distance of 50 kilometers. A church that was built in the 1860s and used as a fort during the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879, remains standing surrounded by settler graves, giving a glimpse into Karkloof’s past"

What fort would this have been.

Any information welcome!

OH2,

Not a fort per se, what I think the writer of that piece is inferring was that Saint Mark's Church at Karkloof was prepared to be used as a defensive position had the need arisen.

In much the same way that George Smith turned over his church at Estcourt during the Langalibalele Uprising in 1873/4.

Hi JY, OH and Dave,
Concur. Laband and Thomson do not list the Karkloof church as a fortification.
They do however list , under Colonial defensive district no 111, nearby Howick laager, York and Curry's Post ( nos 55,56 and 54, respectively).

regards,

barry
