Doe’s anyone know what the relationship was like between Chelmsford and Worsley before the Zulu War. Had they met in other engagements in the wars of British Empire.

And did they meet to allow Chelmsford to hand over command.

Hi dave .
I dont know of their relationship before the zulu war , but positive they didnt meet for the change over , as soon as Ulundi
was over the good Lord C"ford resigned his commission and basically made arrangements to leave Africa as soon as
possible in the year of 1879 Idea .Wolseley did send C"ford a telegram before Ulundi which basically said , Dont proceed
without me !. But Wolseley was held up for 2 or 3 days due to the heavy surf conditions at I think Port Durnford . So C'"ford
had extra time to get on with dealing with the zulu menace " Once and for all ". Hope this helps .
cheers 90th.
