Yes, I know it’s Friday, but Dan said I could post on a Friday and I had a mad day yesterday. Actually, it’s been another crazy week and I am so glad it is Friday evening and the weekend has started.
In Dan’s words: Welcome to Thursday Doors, a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time).
Over the course of the last two Thursdays I have posted about my family’s visit to Fugitive’s Drift Lodge in Kwa-Zulu Natal and share pictures of doors taken at the guest house and lodge.
Today, I am sharing some pictures of the Isandlwana museum and the battlefield.
The Battle of Isandlwana was the first major encounter between the British troops and the Zulu warriors during the Anglo-Zulu War and took place eleven days after the British invaded Zululand. A force of 25,000 Zulu warriors attacked a portion of the British column comprising of approximately 1360 men who were camped at Isandlwana. Only 55 British soldiers survived the battle and these were all officers who were wearing blue coats. Our Zulu guide said this is because the Zulu King had given instructions that the warriors were to focus on killing men wearing red coats. The attire for officers had changed from red coats to blue, and this fact was the survivors saving grace.
