In his biographical account, "Journal of Robert G. Wolridge Gordon During the Zulu Campaign of 1879, privately printed in leather with gold edges all around, he states that at the battle of Ulundi, whereas most of the officers were kneeling under fire, he stood bolt upright and observed the battle through his field glasses. "Whenever a Zulu was hit, he would throw up his arms." So no doubt: Wolridge Gordon was at and participating in the battle of Ulundi on July 4, 1879.
