On my last trip to SA I spent a few weeks in Isandhlwana and visited the cave at Isandhlwana as mentioned in Alan Critchley's story.

I have since been searching the net for more information on this last soldier's stand and have come up with very little.

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

(FYI- An excellent website, an abundance of factual resource)
PS- I have video footage of the cave and a panoramic scan of its vantage point if anyone is interested. (DivX) Certainly get to feel what he must of felt as he gazed below at the carnage below.

I wrote a small piece on this some time ago, I could e-mail you it, if you'd like?

There is a site with the painting of 'The Last of the 24th' by R.T. Moynan, which relates to Irish painters - try a search on Moynan.

Mr Young, I'd like to read your piece on this. I have often imagined what it must have been like to be the last man after so horrific a slaughter.
