Hi all

At 9:30am Pulleine’s message was received by Colonel Glyn.

Also tell me if my new friend, LC, have had time, after giving appropriate orders, for return to Isandhlwana with all the troops with him to cover himself with immortal glory ...

At what time he Would Have Left his position with all his troops to participate in the battle ?

Cheers

Hi Pascal.
We have covered this before and L.C certainly would not have had time to get back to Isandlwana once he received the first message at 9.30 am as you stated , L.C then sent his forces off looking for the whereabouts of the zulu army . We know that other messages were sent and LC said he didnt receive them , I think Clery got Pulleines second message and according to Morris he didnt pass it on to L.C . Lets not forget Hamilton - Browne who also said he sent 4 messages to LC who never replied to any of them because LC said he never received them. Luckily LC didnt try and return to the camp because more than likely he'd have been chopped like the camp.

Hi Gary

And if LC had anyway, tried a forced march to join the camps !

At what time, at the latest, he would have arrived at Isandhlwana ?

Cheers

It would have taken LC's column about the same time to march to the camp, as it would have taken Pulleine and his camp column to march to Mangeni.

interestingTasker , because if Pulleine was attacked in the open, perhaps immediately, he would have to take a appropriate defensive formation ... It is to say a great big square...

Yes, Tasker ,in this situation, I hope they would have the idea pretty quickly, of forming a square

Pascal, not saying they should or even could have formed a square; after a couple of years in the Cape, their cavalry tactics would have become a little unpractised and rusty.
With the square, this is purely a hypothetical tactic with ALL the benefit of hindsight.

Dave
Your quote '' Proved to be ok at Ulundi '' . Well of course it did , like it also did at Kambula & Gingindlovu because of the lessons that were learnt after Isandlwana , in your reference to Ulundi , you do need to remember that there were 3 times, possibly more , the amount of guns in use at Ulundi than at Isandlwana and they also had Regular Cavalry and Gatling Guns which weren't available at Isandlwana . Agree with Tasker , the square talk is all with the benefit of hindsight , Littlehands least favourite word . But , what else is it ??. No mention of squares in LC standing orders , he actually states that formation is not to be used . Shocked Funny , how after Isandlwana he goes square happy ! Shocked Why , because he had the benefit of hindsight and learnt from the previous mistakes . Sorry CTSG , this is for you also . Very Happy

Yes the square or the laager was never mentioned by LC in tactical instructions or orders before Isandhlwana !

It has had Isandhlwana. is so well entrenched for Kambula, it is because he had heard of RD ...

And if wood has not taken his British infantry for Hlobana, it is believed that with his horsemen he could maneuvrer the Zulus.

And he knew that 15 companies, even in square, discovered in Zululand, it was not enough to stop the Zulu royal army ...

Faced 20,000 Zulu, it takes 25 British imperial infantry companies ...

Cheers
