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.

Subject: Fripps Reminiscenses of the AZW in Pall Mall magazine Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:01 am
Hi all . Was just reading Fripp's reminiscenses of the azw from Pall magazine and in reference to John Dunn ; '' It is related that the king asked him if he would fight the English in case of war , and his reply in the negative , he was told that had his answer been otherwise he would not have been believed , and most likely '' Eaten Up '' . Later Fripp goes onto say that he stood on a Black Mamba and did an involuntary war dance on the reptile , much to the detriment of it's health . I think Fripp was very lucky the Mamba never latched onto him as that famous painting would never have existed ! cheers 90th.
