Your pictures have been a great help my friend, especially to those of us who have not got much chance of ever getting to these places to have a look round and pay our respects to all of the fallen.

Well done, and many thanks.

Cheers buddy.

These are two photos that really bring home the extent of the battlefield.
The first photo is taken in approximatly the position Lt Scott first held at
the end of the firing line. The conical koppie is on the immediate left so
Im standing in the gap between the ridge and the koppie.The firing line went
from close to here right the way back to the mountain in the distance. The
second photo I have turned through 180degrees and we looking at the notch
with itusi hill, this the notch that Russell tried to use to get access onto
the ridge with the rocket b attery. In the middle of the shot is a pole
carrying the power cables. approx the line of that pole is where the rocket
battery met their fate. the hill on the right is itusi and to the right of
that begins the Quabe Valley that Durnford rode along.
Hope these shots put a touch of perspective to the battlefield

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
This is the route that durnford took, from the small cluster of houses to
the left as you look of the conical koppie to the mouth of the Quabe valley.
The donga doesn't look that impressive until I tell you that my 4x4 is
parked in it right in front of the camera position

It will happen, a little more research required first. The concept itself will be kept under wraps for a while though.

I'm hoping it will be  "PICTORIAL CATALOGUE" of the Battle of Isandlwana. Step by step guilde. The British layout of the camp. Where the pickets were located on the night of the 21st to the morning of the 22nd. The route Chelmsford took when he departed. The route Raw took when he discovered the Army.

From the Zulu side.

The possible routes that used to get to the valley. The view of Isandlwana from the valley. The route they were sent along when the attack happened. Where they entered the camp.

Photos of the various last stands.

Ending with the deaths of Melville and Coghill near the river. Salute

Hi springy.

Yet more great pictures, many thanks mate, brilliant. Salute

With the knowledge that you have in the AZW and also of these battlefield areas, I for one can't wait for the publication of the book, it should be a great read, and I won't be surprised if it's a best seller.

Good luck with it my friend, and again, thanks for the pictures.

Cheers mate. Salute

Your to kind, any thoughts I have on isandlawana are purely amateur dabbling. I am writing a book, hopefully it will be published before the end of the year. Its not a conventional book giving another breakdown of the battle.. just something different.

Moved to this thread,originally post by Neil Aspinshaw

The view from Mkwene Hill to the Valley of Ngwebeni, where the vadettes were posted, and where Raws men were retreating. Not a great deal of hidden ground?.

Thsi view is approx three-four miles.

Move to this thread, originally posted by Springbok.

Faintly on the right hand side top there is a thin line of trees, just to the left another line. Both of those ridges have reverse slopes Neil. Standing in them and walking for some distance East West axis Mkwene is invisible.

Hi All .
While attempting to find some more evidence ( Not only Brickhill's ) of zulu's coming to the camp under a flag of truce , found this gem which I doubt has been posted before , unfortunately it doesnt mention surrendering zulu's but is very interesting ,
the following is an extract I've taken from one of Major Francis Clery's Letters , he's telling Maj - Gen Sir Archibald Alison two causes in his mind which precipitated the failure of the present campaign , the first I'll only gloss over as its the second one that I found most interesting !.

Helpmakaar Natal 18 March 1879
My Dear Sir Archibald ,
...Well , to my mind , the first cause of our present failure has been the faulty - I should almost say utterly bad - Plan of campaign. Now here is the interesting part .................

'' To come then to the second chief cause ; I think the General and his staff wholly underrated the enemy . Possibly their experience of the Kafirs in the Colony ( Cape ) was the cause of this . They did not appear to believe in the possibility of a real attack by the zulus . It was so much doubted that the zulus would really come on , that orders were issued to the Artillery that they were on no account to open fire at a distance greater than 600 yds , for fear of frightening the enemy and deterring them from coming on or inducing them to run away . I have heard Crealock myself laying stress upon this in one of the small affairs ''. ( 6 ) Footnote , refers to Sihayo's Kraal on the 12th Jan . The letter goes on how they thought the camp or any of the forces on the plain would never be attacked . This would certainly explain why there wasnt a huge amount of artillery rounds expended !. I often wondered why the Artillery wasnt firing much earlier as the zulu were massing or gathering for their attack on the camp . I suppose I put it down to there being dead ground and the zulu army couldnt be seen , but if they were massing on the heights of the plateau etc they should have certainly been shelled in my mind . Once again the lack of awareness and deadly complacency found their mark .
Cheers 90th. You need to study mo

Sorry if this has been posted before.. but i reckon this is as
close as we will get to the truth of the battle, anyhow, worth
posting just to hear David Rattray again.

Just a note to members to avoid writing (please) and certainly not to accept phrases such as "It has been well established that (Pulleine was not the man for the Job)" as posted earlier.
There was an excellent university course I attended yonks ago on recognition of 'persuader language' which might be met in history books - words/phrases designed to inculcate belief, persuade you to a way of thinking, intimidate, all without your realizing it.  Phrases like "It is true to say that...","It goes without saying...", "It is self-evident that...", "It cannot be denied that...","Of course...", "Naturally...", etc.  
"It has been well-established that..." falls into this category.  Ever since, as soon as I come across such words, alarm bells start ringing, and my brain tells me, 'this writer has no hard evidence, he is guessing, he doesn't know what he's talking about, he hasn't done the research, being right is more important than finding the truth', and in this case 'it is certainly not well-established'.  Cave savidicum!

The original engraving, by Godefroy Durand, appeared in the Graphic on 15 March 1879, just six weeks after the battle. Durand was not in South Africa and it was very early days after Isandhlwana. I think it is impressive that he can produce such an iconic image, entirely from his imagination and based on what was, at that time, very limited detailed reporting.

I think, if the records were looked up the Regiment was the 2nd Battalion of the Warwickshire Regiment and did not become the SWB until a later date ».

I wonder how old was Mr M in 1950 ?????

Don't worry Lads I'm still here, and yes, I was around in 1950, but I never lived in Gloucester, so I didn't write that, but whoever wrote it was right, except that they should have said the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment and not the Warwickshire Regiment. However, it does show that someone else cared about stopping the myth that the regiment was welsh and that it was called the swb, and that was 14 years before Baker's blatant corruption about the regiment being welsh. What a shame that there are not more people like this person, who at least did try to put things right and stop all the 'welsh' and ' swb' nonsense.

The Battle of Isandlwana Tue Jun 19, 2012 11:57 pm .... from John
I'm hoping it will be "PICTORIAL CATALOGUE" of the Battle of Isandlwana. Step by step guilde. The British layout of the camp.

I wonder if copies of this print are still available, sound's like PQ had a few knocking about.

I used John's ref, as a guide where to place the images. it really is a cracking print on heavyweight
art paper, look's great framed up.

There are still copies to be had at the iSandlwana gift shop and the Rorkes Drift Gift Shop. I last saw them about six months ago.

book's or anything the receipt's go straight in the bin. cheer's mate.
