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

Barry some time back you asked about locating the 'fort'. There has been a few veld fires in the area and these ditches have come to light, its a serious possibility looking at the angles.

I'll be going there in early april with Paul Naish , he'll know the location of the Fort . In the top pic is that the Cemetery in the background ? .

Yes top right, I went into the field just to get a different view of the grave yard. Since the fires most of the surrounding trees are gone, then just happened to spot this oblong close by. Interesting if nothing else.

This is the cemetery area these days, most of the vegetation is down.

When I was there in 2014 it was basically surrounded by trees and shrubbery , it was like an Oasis in the middle of the bush , I can see the area far better now than then . Thanks for the heads up , will certainly be going there .

forgot to mention Frank what an excellent pic the last one , it shows the barreness to some extent , as it would've been when it was windswept back in 1879 .
