Do you think its possible that Chelmsford didnt take an ambulance because there only was one with the column? And again its possible that Sheperd needed it to transport patients to RD?

Transporting patients for RD? But in this case, the ambulances would have left camp before the outbreak of the Zulu attack ...

More or saw you play a general who is going to face an opposing army, deprived of its ambulances at the last moment in a Hollywood movie?

If Chelmsford had fought, he would have been wounded soldiers who have had a more urgent need for ambulances that patients in the camp who were in a hospital!

Cheers

So Chelmsford did take medical staff etc. Surely then its a bit harsh to say he didnt care about his men? Or am I loosing something in translation?
I assume he didn't take the ambulances for the same reason he didn't take the ammunition wagons. They would slow down the flying column too much...or am I missing something in translation too?

Yes, you can look at it that way if you want to stir up a bit of controversy but I think things appear different when you consider that Chelmsford fully planned to move the entire camp forward to where he was headed.

That night he was rushing out to set up a morning ambush. He ASSUMED he'd be able to bring up his supports later that day. Chelmsford made miscalculations but we don't need to portray him as incompetent or evil or a martinet etc...

There were at least two doctors out with Chelmsford's force.  

Dr. James Godfrey Thrupp, was a civilian surgeon in the Army's employ, he was assigned to 1st/24th, lucky for him fate intervened on 22nd January 1879.  He was tasked with bringing up the rear of the column with two two-wheeled ambulances. (Contrary to Lord Chelmsford's orders!)   

Thrupp's colleague was Dr. Alexander Ralph Busby who had experience of the two-wheeled ambulances from his service in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-8 where they were used by the doctors of the Stafford House Committee.

There was also a small detail of the Army Hospital Corps accompanying the force.

Here is an engraving of Dr. Busby from his time in the Russo-Turkish War, published in The Graphic.

24th,

Although that appeared in The Noble 24th, it should actually be attributed to F.W.D. Jackson's Isandhlwana - the Sources Re-examined from where it was taken.

Yes, that has occurred to me before actually.  Do we have a comparison point however?  Were ambulances brought along for the raid on Sihayo's holdout for example?  Also, I'm curious as to whether the native soldiers were entitled to be transported in the ambulances with the regular or colonial soldiers?  

But, as I say, I believe that Chelmsford intended to bring the camp to him...in which case the ambulances would eventually arrive.  Of course these ambulances were little more than wagons, so the ride from the Mangeni to RD would have probably killed any seriously injured soldier anyway.  In other words, you're getting far too worked up about this. It's not like there was a sophisticated field evac prodedure usually in place. - 6pdr

Hi Springy / Pascal .
If you combine Jimu's post with mine it seems there were 10 ambulances in the 3rd column , 2 with LC which no doubt made it back to RD , and the 8 captured at Isandlwana according to Surg - Gen Woolfryes .
Cheers 90th You need to study mo

I talk about this at the beginning of the topic, I'll bet my old, they took care of them ...

6 PDR wrote: But, as I say, I believe That Chelmsford Intended to bring the camp to him ...

But yes, the message of LC for Pulleine to leave the camp arrived at the moment of the beginning of the attack!

6 pdr, Calculating how long Pulleine have joined LC, if he had the opportunity?

For me, this case of the ambulances is uncroyable!

I think LC imagine that there will be no injuries

Yes as usual every book on this war has its version!

Contrary to Lord Chelmsford's orders!

Marsupial ,This does not change the topic, why LC did not want an ambulance with its "drawling" column?

Drawling column - drawling means to speak with lengthened or drawn-out vowels. scratch
