The1st Lt,

An absolutely wonderful representation of the Gatling Gun at the Northwest corner of the square at Gingindlovu. This was the gun of HMS Boadicea that was positioned where the Zulus first opened their attack.

Hamilton –Browne, who was present at Gingindlovu, recorded “When I reached the Gatling the Zulu skirmishers were beginning to close in and the cool, staid old shell-back in charge of the gun was simply pop-popping at them in a quiet leisurely sort of a way, a proceeding that did not seem to meet with the approbation of a youthful ordinary seaman who was assisting him, and who, as I came up, said in rather an excited manner, " Fire quicker, Quarter-master, for Gawd's sake, fire quicker.” “Fire quicker," growled the ancient mariner, pausing to expectorate a much-chewed quid. "Fire quicker, yer young scupperling, fire quicker be d____d, wait till the black _______ come thicker," and for a few moments he continued his deliberate manipulations. Presently came the rush, … and the ordinary seaman had no longer need to exhort his senior to expedite the juice distributor which, fortunately not jamming and being backed up by the steady fire of the blue-jackets and jollies, in my humble opinion, saved the whole outfit from being cut up both physically and morally.”

Thanks, once again, for a great diorama. Keep up the good work.

1stLt,

You have posed an interesting question.  I have been researching the Naval Brigade for over 10 years and have come up with the following.

There were 2 Gatling Guns at Gingindlovu – the one belonging to HMS Boadicea, which fired the opening shots of the battle was at the North East (Front Right) corner of the square, just to the right of the 60th Rifles.  The Naval officer in command of the corner was Lieutenant Ernest C. Hobkirk.  I don’t know yet which officer had command of the Gatling.  The Petty Officer in charge of the Gatling gun crew was most likely Petty Officer Henry Ransome.

The second gun belonged to HMS Shah, and was stationed at the South East (Rear Right) corner of the square.  This corner was under the command of Commander John Brackenbury.  The Naval officer in charge of the Gatling was Lieutenant Malcolm Drummond.

If anyone has information on the rest of the Gatling crews I anxiously await your posting.

By the way, I have always liked the Black and White – looks more old fashion.  You haven’t tried doing them in Sepia, have you?

Here's an interesting observation.

"Reinforcements after Isandlwana
The disaster at Isandlwana produced a rapid reaction in England, and reinforcements were soon on their way to South Africa.
From home
M6 Battery - Six 7 pr 200 lb RMLs
N/6 Battery - Six 9 pr 8 cwt RMLs
O/6 Battery - Ammunition Column
Note that N/6 Battery had 9 prs, which most field batteries had at the time. O/6 Battery did not bring its guns, and was employed as an Ammunition Column. In this role, it was concerned with ammunition supply for all arms, not just for the artillery.
From Mauritius
Half 10/7 Battery - Three 7 pr 200 lb RMLs

On arrival, this half battery was re-equipped with four Gatlings, and organized as the British Army's first mounted Gatling battery. Its commander, Maj J.F. Owen, has recently been a member of the Commission which investigated an accident aboard HMS Thunderer, where a 12 in 38,5 ton RML gun burst, killing two officers and eight men, and wounding ten others. The accident was one of the reasons for the eventual discarding of the RML system, and a final return to breech loading in the British service.
