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.

1) How would Lawrence have known how many Zulu's were KIA at Isandlwana? He says "The Zulu's left more than 3,000 dead on the field and probably carried away upwards of 6,000 wounded. page 7

2) Were the colours od the 2nd/24th ever found, according to Lawrence, they had been taken to the kings kraal ? page 32

(Same page). 3) Do we know what regimental Records were recovered from the Battlefield?

Another interesting comment by Lawrence page 37 & 38. "The Zulus are reported to have with them a thousand stand of arms (MH Rifles) which had been taken at Isandlwana, and contrary to all previous ideas on the subject they used these weapons with great accuracy at long ranges; a fact which goes far to prove the truth of a statement which has been persistently made, that there is more than one white man at the Kings Kraal; it being perfectly certain that without skilled instruction they never could have learnt is so short time the use of the sight of the rifle which they were entire strangers.

Neil made reference to the Zulu's not being capable in the use of the sights to sometime ago, regarding Isandlwana and RD.
but it appears they were instructed at some point.

The British Casualties throughout the war have never been stated as caused by MH rifle fire , this would be mentioned in Dugald Blair Brown's book , if it did indeed happen , he describes wounds he tended in great detail . Dabulamanzi was certainly a decent shot and he was friendly with John Dunn , there is a report of Dunn and Dabulamanzi having a long distance duel on the day his Kraal was torched by Pearson's force ? , I think it's in ' Fearful Hard Times ' an excellent book dealing with the going on's of No 1 Column . Laurence stating that a 1,000 Martini's were taken at Isandlwana is certainly exaggerated , there wasn't 1,000 Imp troops left at Isandlwana , let alone killed there , half or more of the Imperial force was out with LC chasing the phantom Zulu impi ! . Good to see you back CTSG .
