David Rattray

It is with great sadness that The Wilderness Foundation has learned of the death of our Patron, David Rattray.

News24.com reports
that David, a world expert in the Anglo-Zulu war who promoted tourism to historic battlefields, was attacked and killed at his home on Saturday.

Wilderness Foundation UK Director, Jo Roberts, said of David "There are few human beings who can inspire both young and old, as David did. He had a knack of using history to raise awareness of the present and in this capacity made history work for the benefit of local communities in and around his beloved Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa."

Our thoughts are with David's widow, Nicky and his family at this difficult time.
