I have been watching with great interest the BBC on the 200 year commemorative re enactments to celebrate and remember the fallen at "Waterloo" and got around to thinking that its only fourteen years and the 150th anniversary of the Anglo Zulu war will be upon us. Does anyone know of what is being planned for this huge anniversary?

I would be surprised if the BBC were even thinking about it let alone planning anything. It might be marked by the odd documentary on television but I don't think there will be much going on outside the "community" who are interested in the AZW anyway.

Sad - but that's my opinion.

Perhaps those in power, would rather forget the Battle of Isandlwana. I believe it's still stands as the biggest military blunder to-date. Could be wrong of course.

The 1st July 1916 ranks as a bigger blunder and certainly in terms of lives lost a far more costly one at that.

SPOT the mistakes. First forum member to reach 100 gets a free round of applause.
"The battle that took place at Isandhlwana, which is now Durban in South Africa, was part of a larger colonial campaign that the British Empire fought during the 19th century in Africa. African natives, known as the Zulus, had opposed the British occupation and scored a major victory when British troops, in response to the Zulu nation ignoring an ultimatum, marched on the capital of Ulundi. A force of some 25,000 Zulu warriors camped in wait for one of the marching British columns. The Zulus were well prepared for the battle, they had even managed to acquire a number of guns which they used to fire on the British as they marched. The British were also well prepared, and the Zulu trap was spotted by a British scout. Recognising that their opportunity was now or never, the Zulu warriors, realising they had been discovered, marched quickly on the British column. Being lightly armed and armoured, the Zulus moved quickly and were able to surround the British positions as they were adopting defensive formations. Determined waves of Zulu warriors eventually forced a hand-to-hand engagement which overwhelmed the British troops. Some 1000 British and 2000 Zulus died after the Zulu forces cut off the line of retreat back to Rorkes Drift. Once again it is interesting to consider the historical context and the way that this battle is often discussed in the British mainstream. The fact that the colours of the 24th regiment (the British unit that fought in the battle) were not captured by the enemy and were recovered after being washed up down stream from a river where it is surmised that a Lt. Coghill died defending the banner is often seen as a coded victory for the honour of the British army. What actually happened to the Regimental colours is a matter of historical interpretation as not a single soldier survived to tell the tale. Ultimately the Zulus were defeated when they pushed on to Rorkes Drift as a precursor to an invasion of the land occupied by European settlers in Natal. They were finally defeated at Ulundi when well-drilled British troops beat back a similar Zulu attack. "

Thanks to forum member 'impi' for pointing me to the article and giving me a hearty laugh. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
