Or other content at Poet Patriot. Fuzzy Wuzzy a very rare bear, with other bears would share. British casualties were over 100 dead and a similar number wounded. So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, an' your friends which are no more, If we 'adn't lost some messmates we would 'elp you to deplore; But give an' take's the gospel, an' we'll call the bargain fair, For if you 'ave lost more than us, you crumpled up the square! So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, an' your friends which are no more, If we 'adn't lost some messmates we would 'elp you to deplore. When one of them is out in the bush with his shield and shovel-spear, he could waste a Tommy for at least a year.

The square was penetrated and fierce hand to hand fighting followed but eventually the attack lost momentum amongst the milling camels and transport in the centre, giving time for the flanking units to face inwards and support their comrades. We sloshed you with Martinis, an' it wasn't 'ardly fair; But for all the odds agin' you, Fuzzy-Wuz, you broke the square. We sloshed you with Martinis, an'it wasn't 'ardly fair; But for all the odds agin'you, Fuzzy-Wuz, you broke the square. So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your 'ome in the Soudan; You're a pore benighted 'eathen but a first-class fightin' man; We gives you your certificate, an' if you want it signed We'll come an' 'ave a romp with you whenever you're inclined. The Mahdist forces from the Beja and the Baggara tribal groups had considerable success against Egyptian troops in 1882 and 1883 until, in early 1884, the British Government was forced to send two British brigades, with cavalry and artillery, to the support of the Egyptian army. Twice during the conflict was the British square broken by the Beja warriors, and it is commonly assumed that this instance refers to the Battle of Tamai on March 13th, 1884. In the Sudan campaign of 1883—85, the square had proved successful but there were two occasions when such a square formation of British troops failed to maintain the all-round defence for which it was designed and, regardless of how the failure was caused, must be said to have been broken.

His language is decidedly informal, the language of lively young soldiers. In fact, a new form of square had been introduced by 1883 in an effort to avoid a repeat of the disastrous experience of the 1879 Zulu War. © 11-27-2007 Roger W Hancock by Roger W Hancock Fuzzy Wuzzy was kinda Fuzzy, a bear with little hair. So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your 'ome in the Soudan; You're a pore benighted 'eathen but a first-class fightin' man; We gives you your certificate, an' if you want it signed We'll come an' 'ave a romp with you whenever you're inclined. Farris wheel at the fair, circles Fuzzy through the air.

Fuzzy worked with their horses and played the banjo in his home in the Soudan. The first was at the battle of Tamai, 13 March 1884, when one of two British brigades, moving in separate squares with a cavalry and mounted infantry escort, was surprised by a mass attack of Mahdist troops launched from the cover of a ravine. The term wasn't considered derogatory by the white population at the time. Then 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, an' the missis and the kid; Our orders was to break you, an' of course we went an' did. So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your 'ome in the Soudan; You're a pore benighted 'eathen but a first-class fightin' man; We gives you your certificate, an' if you want it signed We'll come an' 'ave a romp with you whenever you're inclined. We never got a ha'porth's change of 'im: 'E squatted in the scrub an' 'ocked our 'orses, 'E cut our sentries up at Suakim, An' 'e played the cat an' banjo with our forces.

However, the Liberal Government then had other concerns, so that was effectively the end of the Early Campaigns, which fizzled out in the sweltering Sudanese summer of 1885. When the Fuzzy-Wuzzies are alive, they are hot sand and ginger, but when dead they are as helpless as a daisy or a ducky or a lamb. Mahdist dead on the field were estimated at over 1000. Even though the papers said that they were evenly matched, Fuzzy had the advantage. We never got a ha'porth's change of 'im: 'E squatted in the scrub an''ocked our 'orses, 'E cut our sentries up at Sua~kim~, An''e played the cat an'banjo with our forces. In the confusion, one British battalion charged forward from the square, leaving a flanking unit unsupported and the square was penetrated and broken up into smaller groups of desperately fighting men. Fuzzy Wuzzy a special bear, Kinda loved applause.

Soudan Expeditionary Force We've fought with many men acrost the seas, An' some of 'em was brave an' some was not: The Paythan an' the Zulu an' Burmese; But the Fuzzy was the finest o' the lot. Then 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, an' the missis and the kid; Our orders was to break you, an' of course we went an' did. Kipling was a great poet as he was called as the Poet of the British Empire. The speaker notes how they rushed through the smoke, and, before they knew it, the Fuzzy-Wuzzies were attacking at their heads. So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your 'ome in the Soudan; You're a pore benighted 'eathen but a first-class fightin' man; We gives you your certificate, an' if you want it signed We'll come an' 'ave a romp with you whenever you're inclined. This is an example of British Lit at its best and this is not meant as a compliment. Not so fuzzy, Wuzzy thought, looking funny was Fuzzy Wuzzy.

fuzzy wuzzy poem kipling

So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your 'ome in the Soudan; You're a pore benighted 'eathen but a first-class fightin' man; An' 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, with your 'ayrick 'ead of 'air -- You big black boundin' beggar -- for you broke a British square! Kipling was a great writer, but he has something to answer for with 'fuzzy wuzzy'. We took our chanst among the Khyber 'ills, The Boers knocked us silly at a mile, The Burman give us Irriwaddy chills, An' a Zulu impi dished us up in style: But all we ever got from such as they Was pop to what the Fuzzy made us swaller; We 'eld our bloomin' own, the papers say, But man for man the Fuzzy knocked us 'oller. We never got a ha'porth's change of 'im: 'E squatted in the scrub an' 'ocked our 'orses, 'E cut our sentries up at Sua kim, An' 'e played the cat an' banjo with our forces. This could refer to either or both historical battles between the British and Mahdist forces where British infantry squares were broken. The speaker has a tone of cheerful admiration, perhaps underlain with a bit of bitterness that is barely detectable.

This term was used by 19th century British colonial soldiers for the members of an East African nomadic tribe - the Hadendoa. There are two contemporary descriptions which convey something of the ferocity of the Sudanese assaults. The speaker cheers to Fuzzy and his wife and kids, for even though his orders were to break the Fuzzy-Wuzzies, which they certainly did thanks to martinis, the Fuzzy-Wuzzies still broke through the square at the battle. Yes Kipling was fair towards the brave Sudanese fighters of the Bejja Tribes in Eastern Sudan under the leadership of Othman Digna. It expresses the admiration of a British soldier for the Sudanese Beja warriors who fought against the British in the Mahdist War. © 12-11-2007 Roger W Hancock by Roger W Hancock Fuzzy Wuzzy was not so choosy, Fuzzy could not, would not choose, between both doozies, Lucy and Suzy as both were pretty and newsy. The British were eventually victorious over the Fuzzy Wuzzies but with a greater fight than other enemies.
