PostSubject: Royal artillery sub unit at Isandlwana   Sat Jun 10, 2017 8:22 pm

Hi
At Isandlwana, 2 guns of N/5th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, were left behind.

Does anyone what this detachment have been called?

Would it have been a section? If so did the battery have established sub units or was it purely an ad hoc  arrangement.

Or would it have been referred to by its commanders name?

I have bought the William Britain’s Zulu war field gun model and would like to put a name plaque on the display case.

Its not really important but I am a little OCD about such things......

Thanks

Simon

Simon,

Six field pieces to a battery, each battery was sub-divided into three sections of two guns.

I will scan an image of a battery limbered and drawn-up when I can to illustrate this.
