Norman Leveridge works at the museum on a part time basis as a research assistant and archivist.

He has always been interested in the history of the area as he lives on a historic farm and has a passion about military uniforms and the blockhouses of the Anglo Boer War. 

Working with documents in the archives led him to ask more and more questions and he jumped at the opportunity to become a cultural guide.

He is also a registered nature guide.

Bornwell Masuku is the collections manager and education officer at Talana Museum.

He has shown considerable interest in the museum collections and in explaining them, particularly to school groups. 

He has a deep interest in Zulu cultural history and coal mining.

Pam McFadden, a graduate of the University of Natal and University of South Africa, has done considerable field research into the military conflicts fought in KwaZulu-Natal and has regularly conducted tours around these sites for the past 40 years. 

She has published 6 books published on the battles of the area.

As Curator of the Talana Museum since 1983 she has been responsible for the development of the museum and battlefield which is acknowledged as being one of the finest in South Africa.
