The start of the Anglo-Zulu war


Today 11 January 1879, 145 Years ago 

The invasion of the Zululand, the central column crossing the Buffalo River.

See the scene in Zulu Dawn (1979) here. Ian Knight says this was actually filmed at the site but the wrong way round.

  1. One of the original stanchions used in the crossing was still in place 20 years ago. Doubtless trashed by now like most of KZN,?
