Also very sorry to hear that, Saw. I do hope things improve. My excuse is also a very tough few months, family illness culminating in an (expected) recent family death, so that just about everything has had to be set aside. Starting this week I'm hoping to begin to reply to the huge number of emails awaiting attention, including those to members of this forum who have by now no doubt decided I've become a pretty rude and tardy correspondent.

On the other hand, this hot weather won't last forever and there are a thousand things that want doing outside too! But I'm looking forward very much to contributing here again as soon as possible.

Coll, are you beginning to regret your original question?

I think that you will just have to be patient. I'm sure that people will post again when they have something new and interesting to say.

Yes.

Unfortunately, I never thought this would happen, but I stored away my Zulu War books in a drawer a few weeks ago, and went back to pursuing my hobby of studying military firearms.

Not looked at any AZW books for ages. Shocked

Not even watched Zulu Dawn and Zulu.

I rarely check the forums now. Sad

I think my late answer proves a point..... Embarassed

I'm a admin and mod on some other fora( which have nothing to do with the topic on this forum) and it is a similar phenomena there too.

I think the reason is rather simple: Facebook !
Luckily I'm not on facebook but keep loyal to the many fora I'm member off, but not always a poster I'm afraid.

A while ago I made a number of posts concerning the Durnford Papers. I was deliberately cagey in my responses because I told you that I hoped I would be re-publishing and updating an article on them in the near future to which would be added photographs of the original documents as they were when found (i.e. not as they are now).

I also completed my researches into the newspaper article headed ‘A Brave Fugitive’, a discussion of which also occurred on another forum, and promised that this would be available soon.

Several of you e-mailed me to ask when the research would be forthcoming and of course I’ve been very busy with it. However, both these articles and a third are now published under the title ‘Studies in the Zulu War 1879: I’. It contains 81 pages and is produced in A4 paperback format with glossy cover; the three articles are entitled:
Isandhlwana and the Durnford Papers by F. W. D. Jackson and myself
A Brave Fugitive: An Anonymous Account of Isandhlwana by myself
“An Englishman in outlandish places…”: Anthony Trollope and Lieut. Nathaniel Newnham-Davis in South Africa, 1877 by myself

I am not interested in making money from this but I would like two museums to benefit from their sale. Accordingly the book is available only through the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh, Brecon (Bill Cainan) and its website and, it is intended, through the shop at the Royal Engineers’ Museum, Chatham (I am awaiting their consent on this).

I intend to re-publish previously-published (but difficult to obtain), updated articles together some new ones under the same title – I currently have enough for nine further volumes of similar length – and these will appear gradually over the next three to four years. Volume II is almost finished.

I hope you enjoy reading them and it'll cause some debate here!

Well now, I'm kind of overwhelmed. Being British as most of you are, you probably have no idea how your sentiments improve my mood.
