Guys it was a pleasure to have been able to help on this. If need be I can try get to other sites in the Northern KZN area. And any photo's needed I will try and provide. Thanks too on the interesting history on HC Gorton. Will drink my next beer to him.
I am very keen on finding and listing sites. And though i am limited to where i can get in my little VW Polo, I will give it my best shot. I have been trying mainly to find as many of the burial sites as i can in the Northern Natal area. I was surprised to find some not listed on some sites and would like to build up a small database of all the sites. If anyone has a site which lists the GPS co-ordinates of various graves or points of interest from the Zulu wars right through to the Bambatha Rebellion it would be greatly appreciated. I recently found graves on Pieters Hill I didn't know of so that was a Great find for me. As was the Graves at the Churchill Capture site. The later been great as I met someone there one day who stayed in the area but never knew about the graves on the other side of the line, this despite visiting the Churchill monument numerous times over the last 30 years.
I suspect for Brett, seeing your photo photograph was infact the cherry on the icing, on the afore mentioned cake.
I like the reference at the bottom of the stone "Erected by the staff of the Castle and Natal breweries"
Really wonderful to see it, many thanks again

If anyone can have a go at finding this chap I really would appreciate it. There are three Indian graves in Natal. "Capepolice " has found two of them. This would be my "cherry"
Looking for Salutries, Salootries and Veterinary Duffadars.
I collect primarily QSAs to Indian Recipients.
In my excitement at seeing your photographs, I forgot to welcome you to this forum. You are indeed most welcome and you have already made a great contribution to this site. I hope there will be much more to follow. A fresh pair of eyes and enthusiasm is just what the battlefields of KZN need.
