In going over the old discussion forum, I came across a fascinating on line journal, The South African Military History Society, which has many articles on the AZ & AB Wars. One small article is about Lt. JA Roberts, no. 2 troop, Sikali Horse, NNH complete with photo from the Natal Mercury.

The article, dated 12/1990 vol. 8 no. 4 can be found at:

In Mr. Snook's fascinating book he suggets that poor Lt. Roberts was the victim of friendly fire from the RA guns at Isandlwana (pg.187) Sad

The photo doesn't come from the Natal Mercury.

I noticed that the article you mentioned on roberts was incomplete. I mentioned it to the archivist who had indeed missed a small piece out. It's now corrected.

Excellent! Seeing the pix of these lads brings them to life, rather than just remaining a name in a book. Smile
