Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi everyone. Just A thought.

Did they have hospital tents during the Zulu War? Or were the wounded troops treated out in the open on the battlefield. I know the troops had the Bell tents, but did they have specially adapted tents that would able to accommodate a large number of troops if needed. I can’t see them carting off the wounded to the nearest hospital. And thinking about it they must have had surgeons attached to the column in order to treat the wounded almost immediately. Which would have been a bit risky especially if the surgeons were killed.
