Description
WITH WILSON IN MATABELELAND
C.H.W. Donovan

THE AUTHOR, Captain C. H. W. Donovan, like Captain Cornwallis Harris and many other British Army Officers serving in India and other stations during the late nineteenth century, was first attracted to southern Africa by the wildlife and opportunities for hunting. He headed for. the Northern Transvaal, passing through Pretoria and Pietersburg en route to the Limpopo, Lundi and Tokwe Rivers and Fort Victoria.

Part One of his book (1894), of which this is a facsimile reprint, records his carefree days of duck-shooting, biggame hunting and tiger-fishing. On reaching Fort Victoria it was inevitable that he should respond to Dr. Jameson's appeal to help repel the Matabele who were then raiding the local Mashonas. From this point Captain Donovan conducts the reader through the events of 1893: the mustering of the Victoria Column, the junction with the Salisbury Column, the battles of Shangani and Bembesi, and the occupation of King Lobengula's Bulawayo on 4th November, 1893. Ten days later the Tati Columns reached Bulawayo and the pursuit of the King, northwards towards the Zambesi, was undertaken. But Donovan was sent back to Bulawayo to deliver despatches to Dr. Jameson and mails to Palapye, after which he returned to England, missing personal involvement of the subsequent debacle of the Shangani Patrol.

Donovan's account is rich in anecdote and is particularly noteworthy for the many references made to personalities in Rhodesia at that time. His comments on the first military engagements in Rhodesia, and the effects of modern arms on the combatants, make a meaningful contribution to the early records of the Occupation.

A unique feature of the reprint is the newly incorporated Appendix which is based on numerous annotations made in an original edition which belonged to Jack Carruthers who was also involved in the operations described by the author.
