Huw M Jones

I was very sorry to hear of the death last week of Huw M Jones. Huw will be best known to students of the Anglo-Zulu War for his masterly study of the Utrecht district during the war, including the battle of Hlobane, The Boiling Cauldron. He had spent part of his career in government service in Swaziland and he had a strong interest in the role of the Swazi prince, Mbilini waMswati, in the war, and Swazi involvement along the convuluted north-western border of Zululand.
