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

Hi Elizabeth,

I am very pleased to see that the book on your grandfather, titled "Lt Col G.S.Mardall and his family", ex NMP/NP is now on the book shelves.
Congratulations . The culmination of many years  hard work by you and your co-author and sister Caroline.
The anecdotes and pictures of places ( particularly Colonial  Pietermaritzburg) and personalities of the AZW era in Natal as well as later times will be of great interest to historians at all levels.

regards

Hi Gary,
Good to hear from you down under. Yes all is well here.
To answer your question ; I have not seen the book yet but knew it was in the works some time ago. Elizabeth contacted me for some information in the past so I knew it was being worked on. She told me yesterday via email that it has now hit the book stores.
I cannot yet comment on the exact contents of her work but know much of it is about her grandfather's life in the NMP/NP, having arrived in Pietermaritzburg and joining up about a month after Isandlwana. In fact his draft of recruits was specifically brought from England by Dartnell to make up for the attrition in the NMP suffered as a result of the battle.
Elizabeth Thom, the author, is George Mardall's granddaughter and is a member of this forum, so can be contacted via this medium for more information.

regards
