Hi all,
For those who have not visited the batttlefields before, here are some distance perspectives.
These are quoted  as straight line, ie as the crow flies (atcf) in kilometres,  to the first decimal place, so, to convert quickly to miles, divide by 1.6

Isandlawana pinnacle to ;

Black's kopje                      .6
Isandlwana Nek                 .4  
Helpmekaar                    23.0    
Oskarberg                      10.5  
Fugitives Drift                   5.7  
Dundee aerodrome          45.6  
Blacks  Sangar                  5.7  
Manzimyama crossing        2.5  
King Shaka  AP, Durban  173.0
Fort Pearson                  124.0
Tugela mouth                 128.0
Durban city                    173.0
Ladysmith                       88.5
Port Durnford                 133.7
Helpmekaar                     24.8
