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

Here's another early shot of the grave markers taken from the opposite direction to JY's. The stone cross is visible and I think the iron cross is side-on to its left. There is another cross further towards the right and what looks like a set of sheer legs in front of the largest cairn near the centre (presumably to lift some of the rocks). If you look closely at the iron cross in JY's picture it looks as though it has a stone or wooden main leg?

Steve,

Many thanks - another fascinating photo of the cemetery, showing that a handful of other graves appear to have been individually marked; unfortunately it seems that the identities of those interred beneath have been lost as these markers have weathered, collapsed or been removed.

Frank,

At first I thought that the simple iron cross there today may have been erected to replace the fanged one at some point - however I've just come across a copy of a news report covering the centenary commemorations in 1979 & there is a shot showing both crosses.

Regards,

Tim

Morning Aussie
It is the Colonial Burial Area but looking in the opposite direction. The range in the background is the Hlazakazi leading down the plain.

Cheers

The simpler cross is visible in this photo and Im pretty sure that John Young will be able to date the 'Butterfly' collector pictured.

Frank,

That's 'The Queen's Cross' expedition of 1880.  Henry Stabb & Commandant Bowker are the two Europeans in the photograph, also there should Be Jabez Molife.

Morning John
Have you managed to date your earlier photo with the wagons?
The fact that the slimline cross was in place in 1880 is interesting. Does that put the 'wagons' photo as late 79 early 80?

Hi Aussie
There was a proposal at one point to move Macleroys remains to PMB but his dad objected and wrote to the provincial authority requesting it remain buried on the side of the Fugitives Trail. I will dig out the letters for you and post.

Cheers

Frank,

George MacLeroy is buried next to his father in PMB. His mother had George Jr.'s body recovered from Isandlwana in one of the final acts she did before leaving Natal for England in 1881/2.

I annotated George's sister's diary for the period of 1877-82 for the family a few years back, and can confirm the body was interred in the Commercial Street cemetery in PMB.

I presented a lecture on George MacLeroy entitled 'When the Son of a Banker met the Son of a King' a couple of years back which tied in George's story with that of Prince Dabulamanzi. As both families have struck up a close friendship.

I would put the photograph with the wagon post the butterfly-collectors photograph, as the photographer responsible for the wagon photograph post-dates the other photographer.

Still trying to draw a timeline using those photos showing the cross.
