Zulu.Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

I was just wondering if anyone has examined R. Lock and P. Quantrill, The Red Book. (Natal Mercury newspaper reports of 1879) or has a copy in their personal collection.

ah thats fine, thanks for the response. I had a copy that is no longer available and reacorded some good information unfortunatly without the date the Mercury published each artilce. I keep second guessing myself if that was available or not and am just trying to get someone to confirm from a few notes I have written down.
