Can I draw the Forumís attention to The Military Odyssey event at the Kent County Showground,
Detling, Kent, ME14 3JF please see

Which is being held over the Bank Holiday weekend of 25th-27th August 2018.

It is hoped that there will be a muster of some one hundred Victorian Military re-enactors under
the collective name of A Company, 24th Regiment. Who will be readying themselves for the
140th Anniversary events scheduled for next year in KwaZulu-Natal.

On Sunday, 26th August the Company will presented with a set of replica Colours which they
will carry with them to the battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorkeís Drift. In a unique ceremony the
Colours will be presented by Her Royal Highness Princess Zama-Zulu Shange, the descendant of
Prince Dabulamanzi kaMpande. The party accompanying the Princess will include descendants
of protagonists from both battles representing British, Zulu and Natal Colonial combatants.
The Princess will be escorted by two Knights of the Realm - including the well-known actor,
Sir Michael Gambon.

Well done to Forum member, Tim Rose of The Diehard Company and James Dixie Dix of
The Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment Re-enactment Society for putting this all together.
