|7th November 2003||A really good read|
For those that may not have seen it, there's an excellent private soldier's view of the AZ War, in my 'umble opinion, in the latest journal of the AZ Historical Society. It's the diary of a Private Tucker, 3rd Battalion, 60th Rifles, and apart from his experiences on the ground, also gives a fascinating insight into life on board ship on the way to South Africa.
He was part of the second invasion force and fought at Gingindhlovu en route to relieving Eshowe.
