At Myer’s Drift on the eNtombe River, in the very early hours in the morning a Zulu force led by Chief Mbelini attacked a military convoy encamped on the banks of the river en route to Lüneburg. The convoy was overrun and most of the men and wagon drivers massacred with only a handful of men lead by Sgt Booth fighting their way out. No fee.

There is no on site information and the battlefield is very difficult to find.
