Hello, I signed up a month ago and meant to post a 'hello' before now. I'm English and UK-based but lived in South Africa in the early 2000's and visited the battlefields many times whilst living in Johannesburg as part of a round the World tour of jobs.

I'm lucky to have walked most, if not all, of the major battle sites and a lot of the minor ones. I've paid my respects to the troopers cut down with the Prince Imperial, speculated on the view Chelmsford and co had from the expedition away from the Isandlwana camp and searched, as have many others, for Major Smith's last resting place.

I am sat here surrounded by weapons from the time and some nice 'modernish' Zulu regalia as well as a lovely functional model of one of the RA's 7pdr guns from the battle (from Palmer's Armoury in Port Elizabeth) and also have a fair few shelves of reading matter regarding the War - certainly enough to occupy my tiny little mind anyway!

I have to say that I do tend to lurk on forums rather than participate actively but if there's something I can add value to I will try and do so.

When I lived in ZA, I was fortunate to be 'adopted' by the Zulu members of my company and as a result was given my own name in isiZulu and have a praise poem written in my honour. It's a privilege from a wonderful group of people whose friendship I treasure. My own daughter (4) has Lindiwe (loosely she who was waited for) as a middle name and the three of us are hopefully off to Isandlwana later in the year for a blessing in the church there for her. I intend to ensure she understands the import of the events of 1879 - and that's regardless of whether she's interested, i am going to be the terribly boring father who pursues his own interests and makes the family tag along.

Finally, since I will be seeing Salute Sgt Major MacNutt's daughter this weekend, I shall pass on the forum's best wishes and general love of the Carry On Films Very Happy: something I can firmly identify with.

Best, Simon

Welcome to the forum Simon.

You can't go wrong with the Carry Ons, even when you are down in the mouth they bring a smile to your face, and I bet LH has watched some of them (even though he's younger than some of us), but like Les says, at 45 he's no spring chicken.  Very Happy
