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.

Battle frontage of the brave 24 th at Isandhlwana Empty
PostSubject: Battle frontage of the brave 24 th at Isandhlwana   Battle frontage of the brave 24 th at Isandhlwana EmptyTue Feb 21, 2012 11:08 am

Hi all

Since at Isandhlwana the 7 companies of 24 th were in extended orders, which front each company occupied on average?

In extended order,they are 1 yard(0,91m ) per man and three paces (2m25 ) between each man...

The problem is knowing how many rows there are at Isandhlwana in extended order ( 1 or 2 ? ) and if each company commander had planned a support consisting of men of his company as stipulated in the Regulation ...

Very important issue when one is interested in the progress of the battle begins...

Cheers

Pascal

Hi Springbok9

According to the regulation cited above by me , it would make 203 m to 232 m per company ...!

But to his extreme left to his extreme right, what was the maximum in m of the front of the battle line of the british at Isandhlwana ...

Cheers
