Hi,

Has Lt Armitage's letter (about the burial detail at Isandlwana) ever been transcribed?

Cheers

Simon

Hi

Thanks a lot, I heard that it was in the museum (at Brecon) a few years ago but hoped it had been 'released'.

Cheers

Simon

Simon,
Effectively the letter was a few years ago in the Brecon Muséum. I tried to get a copy of it (or a transcript) without success. Some extracts of the letter have been published in the newspapers.
Cheers
Frédéric
