1 .... Battle of Shangani


The Bembesi Memorial is at the juntion of Whites Run Road and the national Bulawayo-Salisbury(Harare) road, a few hundred meters from the
Zimbile farm corner boundary. The farm homestead is in a fork of the Meyezani River about an inch away from the red letter 2 and under the COLENBRANDER text. The nearest water for the column's livestock was on a fork the the Meyezani River on which Peter Fletcher subsequently built 'Dyke Wrights' dam on Zimbile. The Clem White referred to in some accounts of the Battle can be seen outside Pat Fletcher's first office in Bulawayo.
