Bonsoir 24th,

But I gave the source (Brecon Museum) and the references (AZW catalogue n°4 / 2002.120 20D4.38)

Bonsoir "Old Historian"

I don't know, indeed!!!
In the catalogue, the description (as for example" my quotation"), the references (of the document in the Brecon Museum) and the person (for example Pte PARSONS 2/24th 783) are the only information can be read on line.

On the website you can read: "The museum holds substantial archives relating to the service of the 24th South Wales Borderers, 41st and 69th Welch Regiment, Monmouthshire Regiment and from more modern times The Royal Regiment of Wales.

A project is underway of putting this collection on our site to provide great access and awareness, particularly for those unable to visit the museum in person. The first phase of this project has been completed and the catalogue of documents relating to the Anglo-Zulu war in 1879 is now available for consultation".

Cheers.

LH. So we can be sure, that before proceeding to Isandlwana, LC failed to undertake a risk assessment.
Along with the production of method statements. Deep excavations, should have barriers place around the edges, along with appropriate signage and lighting. I suppose it could be argued that everyone is responsible for their own and others H&S.
