Thank for showing a really remarkable Zulu War memorial. Also for transcribing the names. The Ntombi River disaster was another salutary lesson for the British, who were altogether too casual in their approach to the Zulus in the early days of the war

PS Congratulations on your 1000th post. I look forward to many more.
