Does anyone know, just how many men were sent from the battlefield of Isandlwana to warn others of the Disaster!

Hi Dave
There was the 9 oclock (aprox) that said there were sightings to the left front. Then a message was sent after Gardiner arrived, Gardner added to that message. Thats all from isandlwana itself, there were many sent of from Brown though. 3 possibly 4 I think.
Ive heard it mentioned that Durnford sent of a message while on the retreat, but thats all it has been just a mention.

Cheers

Springbok apoligies i should have made myself more clear.

I was reading that Coghill left the Battle field to warn those at Rorkes Drift. How many others either stopped at RD gave the message a rode on, and how many after the battle stated they had left to give the warning?
