I believe Lieut. Edgar Anstey and the remains of his company were the last group to offer any organised resistance to the Zulus!  I'm told he and his men died on the banks leading down and close to the Manzimnyama Stream. Was he and his men buried where they fell or were they moved? Not far from the start of Fugitives Trail there is a neat row of ten cairns; soon after these cairns there's another row of about seven cairns. I've been told these are the remains of Anstey and his company. Is this incorrect?

Mickager,

According to The Southern African Campaign of 1879: 'No accurate record of Anstey's death exists...' but it is suggested that he took part in desperate rally to the east of the camp.

However, one thing is certain Edgar Oliphant Anstey does not lay beneath a cairn on the battlefield of iSandlwana. His brother, Thomas, removed the body and it was re-buried in St. John's Churchyard, Woking, Surrey in 1880.

Hi Mickager
I walked down the Fugitives Trail yesterday and yes you are correct , there are 7 Cairns where Anstey and his men met their maker , on the bank of the Manzimnyama stream ( not sure of the spelling )
