thank you Marsupial

You're too awesome! '' Ammunition expended by the Naval Brigade at Battle Of Inyezane; Eleven Rockets, 2,400 Rounds Of Martini - Henry (for how MH?), 300 rounds of Gatling'' in 90 minutes ...

Should be collected on a single topic, all this kind of information for each battle !!!

Cheers

Yes Marsupial because it's with this recorded post we realize that:

- Theories of firing cadences of fire are stupid things .

- It took a lot of ammunition to knock out a single opponent ...

"There were 4000 in the attacking force ,and Cetewayo told them that if they did not"eat up"the white man never to show their faces before him again"

littlehand , Cetewayo was not very nice with his warriors sent against the first column , he sent too many warriors against the 3rd column and not enough against the first column ...

Cheers

Pascal
