Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Bonjour Gary,
IK wrote: "And, thanks to the passion of one member of the group, we spent a lot of time pondering the fate of the rocket battery, following their tracks from iSandlwana and comparing the various accounts of their demise. Did we find the elusive spot where they were over-run? Well, we certainly did to our own satisfaction, a small patch on the eastern slopes of the iNyoni ridge which fits the tantalising clues left by the survivors like nowhere else. It’s an area that has been compromised over the years by a nearby roadway and by cultivation, but even so perhaps one day another archaeological survey will find some traces of what went on there, and prove us right – or wrong."

Do you have more information?
Cheers

Hi Frederic
We dont have any '' information '' per se , Frank will no doubt understand , it's all due to witness statements and lay of the land , I dont think I should elaborate at this stage . We will no doubt go over it with a fine tooth comb in April - May given the chance agree
