Some of many mistakes

Zulus being 4 Miles
3,000 dead
Zulu trap
Over heat and miss fire
Ammuntion supplies ran out
The zulus could advance easily
The natives running and leaving a gap in the line
Brickhill a soilder
A wounded solider asking brickhill for a lift
Part time force of peasent farmers
only 8 of those left to defend the camp escaped



Cheers

Hi DB.
Brickhill was asked for a ' Lift ' by Band Sgt Gamble ( Basicall still a soldier ! ) so it isnt a mistake . It was indeed a patrol which basically found the army which in turn signals the start of the battle .
Cheers 90th . Salute

Gives a great feeling of the battle, atmosphere etc.
Some one once wrote, 'why let the truth get in the way of a good story."
Nice to see the original settings being used, the trail, Fugitives Drift et.
Well done John good post.

Cheers

Db
Without wishing to be pedantic, Gamble was actually wounded. Some where in the deeper reccesses of my memory Im sure I recall him being seen in the hospital tent.

Could very easily be mistaken though.
Still should keep you busy for a couple of hours looking through the books. :lol:

Cheers Salute
