Hi guys
Sorry i have not been posting much recently been very busy I was thinking about Durnfords pre Isandlwana movements if anyone can elaborate more that would be great I know he moved his forces from the middle Drift to KransKop Fort Montgomery can anyone find out the days he left these places and the day he arrived at Rorkes Drift and were was he when he received Chelmsford's rebuke letter also what forces did he leave at the Fort it seems he split his forces as well a common thing is it in the early stages of this war I will post one of my photos from on top Kranskop to wet your appetites thanks guys

Nice photos Aussie.

According to Droogleevers book Durnford's movements were as follows.

14 January. Moved towards Middle Drift, arrived at top of Kranskop and received the rebuke from Chelmsford. Returned to camp.

15 January. Received orders to proceed to RD. 1st and 2nd NNC left at Kranskop.

18 January. Arrived at Sanspruit.

20 January. Arrived at RD at dusk.

I have used this thread to post the following simply because it is the most recent of many on Durnford. Just come across his army record which I have not seen before. It struck me  that it uses an interesting formulation of words for who was in command at Isandhlwana. Army hedging its bets even then!
"present and in command at the battle of Isandula when he was killed - (Lt General Lord Chelmsford in chief command)."

Hi Steve

What a great post.

Who would have filled this out??
Would this have been done by his own Regt. or someone like Lord Chelmsford's sidekick Lieut.-Col. Crealock?
