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.

Formations of the British infantry in combat ...

When in skirmisher, the soldiers are lying, kneeling or standing, as they see fit ?

When on line, The first rank is kneeling ?

A Gingindhlovo, they are two ranks and the first rank is kneeling ?

The two ranks shoot together ?

When a square as in Ulundi, it is about four ranks and the first two ranks, are on their knees ?

On four ranks, how to perform the shooting ranks by ranks ? Starting with the first ? Or some ranks do not shoot ?

Cheers

When in skirmisher order, the soldiers are lying, kneeling or standing, as they see fit Question

It depends on the orders of the officers what they want Salute

When on line, The first rank is kneeling Question

It depends on the orders of the officers what they want. Sometimes kneeling if we narrow forehead, sometimes, both, standing, the rear rank man aligned with the gaps Salute

A Gingindhlovo, they are two ranks and the first rank is kneeling Question

It depends on the orders of the officers what they want. Sometimes kneeling if we narrow forehead, sometimes, both, standing, the rear rank man aligned with the gaps Salute

The two ranks shoot together Question

One after the other Salute

When in square as at Ulundi, it is about four ranks and the first two ranks, are on their knees Question

One lying, one kneeling, two standing Salute

On four ranks, how to perform the shooting ranks by ranks Question Starting with the first Question Or some ranks do not shoot Question

Shoot by ranks unless independent firing is ordered Salute
