"The Road to Isandhlwana".

On page 230;

" Durnford's last moments are not clear. He was believed to have been shot through the heart but his body was also found to be covered with assegai wounds. He lay on his back - for some reason the Zulus had not stripped off any of his clothes - on the nek close to the stony kopje, probably close to the Rorke's Drift road. Around the fallen Colonel was a most poignant scene. Lieutenant Durrant Scott and fourteen of his fellow Carbineers, Natal Mounted Police, Buffalo Border Guardsmen, Newcastle Mounted Riflemen, Imperial and black infantry lay scattered around him."

Hi.

Are the orders found on Durnford's corpse on display at the museum or must you request sight of these and if so, is there an archive reference to be quoted?

Many thanks.

Michael

The RE Museum's reference numbers for the Durnford Papers is 4901-44/1, 44/12, 44/2, 31/7, 31/9 and 31/10. But they are in a very fragile condition and I am not sure how happy they are to allow access. However, all the original papers are reproduced, together with typewritten texts and a commentary in Julian Whybra's "Studies in the Zulu War 1879 Volume 1. The publication is available from the Museum of the Royal Welsh at Brecon.
