Hi all. I'm trying to animate the phases of the battle of Isandlwana. But I need a basic timeline in order to do so. Reading from various books and online, it's clear that the timeline is all over the place.
Is there a general consensus to the timeline? For example, what time did Durnford arrive at camp (10:30?) and what did he depart(11:30?).
My intention is a basic animation based upon the timelines established here, animated using accepted figures for the speed of horses, men walking etc.

Eeeeekkk....times/timelines.....I'm not sure there will ever be a consensus.......but I look forward to seeing the results, it opens a whole can of worms with regard to watches and memory of traumatic events.
Julian did a good job of tying in events on the 22nd with each other (mainly on the return of Chelmsford) with reference to sunset, twilight dawn etc
Interestingly enough I am reading a bit about the Little Bighorn and there is the same problem there, despite that fact the 7th had an Officer, whose job it was to look at his watch and make official notes about march times etc. I spose he had more things on his mind later on 25/26th June 76 (I don't think he was with GAC but one of the other 'battalions')

Sheldon while I fully agree that a timeline would be of benefit it must also be tied in to the paths of the various patrols etc. In other words dont believe all you read, its why most of the timelines wont work so my advice is reverse engineer, work out the paths then add a time line.
