The same 'eye witness' reports that Symons found a bunch of cheques belonging to him and that there were 'Books papers photographs scattered around. So highly possible he was the finder.

Just for a moment I thought I had a glimpse of the holy grail, but not so. This cutting is from the Edinburgh Evening News of 19 August 1939.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It is about the Natal Carbineers. "Colonel" E M Green was "Trooper" E M Green at the time of Isandhlwana. The order referred to is the one which decided who would go with Dartnell to scout the Mangeni and who would remain. I am not sure it decided the fate of the camp, but for the Carbineers it was a fateful document.
