Not long finished reading the book covering the Titanic hearings, which is a reasonably sized tome, and covers in detail crew, witness, rescue statements, etc. It struck me that such coverage, even with the fame of the ship itself being unsinkable, and some high profile passengers, that nothing of even half this scale was investigated about Isandhlwana, where a large number of lives were also lost in another shocking incident, not much more than 30 years earlier.

Would it have needed for Lord Chelmsford himself to also be killed on the 22/23rd January, whether further into Zululand or en route back to Isandhlwana/Rorke's Drift, to raise the profile enough for this level of public interest
