I saw on the RDVC Forum that the book is available in two different covers ! . We'll have to wait and see if anything new is found , and anything old disproved ? . Pity Les has gone , as he did buy anything connected with the zulu war , I'm sure he'd have given us a rundown You need to study mo . I'd be waiting till more is revealed from within the publication before I pick one up ! .Shocked

90th,

Don't forget to remind Rob to let me know when he needs me to do the defence of the hospital again!

Don't bother with Durban head for Umhlanga Rocks instead!

All the best,
