Following on from a point raised on another recent thread.
What do people reckon would have happened on the 22nd if Major Dartnell had returned to camp with his whole force on the evening of the 21st?

Firstly Kate I think there would have been some serious scouting very early in the morning. That could very easily have brought forward the charge. Wasnt it Mehlokazulu that said the chest was about to break when the bugles sounded? With more than double the number of rifles brought to bare I would quail at the thought of the carnage.
There could easily have been a spin of continuing that line that the decimation could have been so severe that Hlobane and Khambula would not have happened.

Kate,

If Dartnell had returned, then there would have been no necessity to reinforce him.

Just imagine the firepower of six cannon and the addition of the 2nd/24th’s companies.

I agree with Frank it would have been carnage.

Guys,

I hesitate to ask, because I feel my question for you all is quite basic. That said, I do have a fundamental idea of the Isandlwana battle, but specific, intricate details and all officers in the original column are not yet part of my knowledge base. I thought I had a decent knowledge base when I joined. Alas, I am merely capable of having a casual conversation about Rorkes Drift/Isandlwana and the follow on battles culminating in the Zulu collapse at Ulindi.
Enough preamble. What was Major Dartnells command that is being referred to? Approximately how many men/artillery/cavalry/lancers et al. A link or brief explanation would help this new guy out. Just trying to learn. Respectfully,

Stand to

“Stand To!”

On Tuesday, 21st January 1879 Major John George Dartnell, the Commandant of the Natal Mounted Police, led one section of a two-pronged reconnaissance to probe the stronghold of a Zulu chieftain, Matshana kaMondisa.  Dartnell’s force was composed of three other officers and seventy other-ranks of the N.M.P. and four officers and forty-two other-ranks of the Natal Volunteers.

The other section of the reconnaissance was commanded by Commandant Rupert Lonsdale and was composed of eight companies of the 1st Battalion, 3rd Regiment, Natal Native Contingent, and seven companies of the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Regiment, N.N.C.  

For fuller details as to the numbers involved can I suggest consulting F.W.D. Jackson’s Hill of the Sphinx, or his three part Isandhlwana 1879: the Sources Re-examined which appeared in the Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research in 1965.  Those journals are available online through the JSTOR website.

In response to the Dartnell/Lonsdale reconnaissance coming into contact with Zulu forces, he sought assistance from Chelmsford at iSandlwana.  In the early morning of 22nd January 1879, Chelmsford led out part of No. 3 Column to reinforce their position, taking with him six companies of the 2nd/24th, four cannon of ‘N’ Battery, 5th Brigade, Royal Artillery and most of No. 1 Squadron, Mounted Infantry.

Again, Jackson details these figures.

Peter,

In answer to your question.

The General-Officer-Commanding - Lieutenant-General (Local Rank) Lord Chelmsford.

Hi Stand To
Dartnell had no Artillery , no Imperial Cavalry or Lancers , the 17th Lcrs and the 1st KDG'S were part of the reinforcements sent for the 2nd Invasion . Dartnell was a Colonial Officer who had about 130 - 150 Mtd men with him , these being all Colonial horseman made up of the Natal Carbineers , Natal Mtd Police , Newcastle Mtd Rifles along with members of the Buffalo Border Guard , he also had the unmounted NNC battalions the 1/ 3rd and  2/3rd NNC , probably about 700 or so in each of those  , two companies of each Battalion remained at Isandlwana for outpost and piquet duties , Dartnell's force made their way out of command. Dartnell seperated his command with Hamilton Browne taking one of the Battalions of the NNC to scout over and around the Malakatha range , while Dartnell continued his movement along the Malakatha's to the Hlazakazi Hills . Both these forces met up late evening of the 21st and stayed overnight in Eastern part of the Hlazakazi Hills . Someone will hopefully post a map to indicate the movements , technology and I don't go well together ! .

I've always thought it was a terrible idea to send Dartnell out to scout given the forces he had under his command.

If he did run into any trouble, and he believed that he had, he would need to be reinforced or risk being wiped out.

Surely sending him out to scout in the first place was one of the worse decisions that were made?

Many thanks,
Sam

There was a Gatling Gun present during the first invasion but not with Chelmsford's No3 column.
It was attached to Pearson's No1 Column down at the coast and belonged to H.M.S. Actives Naval Brigade.
At the battle of Nyezane on the 22nd January, it fired approx 300 rounds whilst under the command of Midshipman Lewis Coker who was apparently 'delighted with its performance.'

Thanks Kate. I had watched a Youtube video that erroneously claimed that LC had the Gatling. TYVM for clarifying.

Hi BigPaulie
LC did have a Gatling Gun at Gingindlovu when he was on the way to relieve Pearson's Column at Eshowe on April 2nd .

There was a well-known battlefield guide who was adamant that there had been a Gatling Gun used in the Defence of Rorke’s Drift. When asked for his source it proved to be a novel by Wilbur Smith.

‘Nuff said.

Hi 90th,
Maj Dartnell did have RML 9 artillery with him. They fired into the camp in the semi darkness on their return from Chelmsfords Frolick, after the battle. Confirming however that there were no Gatlings at either Isandlwana or Rorkes Drift but some ,65's Naval variants were with the Coastal Column. These were offloaded from one of the RN ships anchored off Port Durnford, having been warped ashore, and manhandled and wheeled from there, through the Mtunzini Swamps, up into Zululand by men of the Naval Brigade. The carriages for these had been hastily manufactured onboard by the ships carpenters.

regards

barry.

Hi Barry
Yes I think you'll find that the Artillery which fired into the camp was the RA who was with LC , and it was lagging behind most of the way , fairly certain Dartnell had no artillery of his own ? , Dartnell's force were NNC and about 100 Mtd Colonials , hope you're well Barry ? , stay safe and well .

LC did that himself. PM Disraeli knew the facts. LC conducted a Victorian campaign of CYA (Cover Your Arse). Prime example of men that were promoted far ahead of their abilities or common sense. Sorry, but LC isn't a saint and the outcome of Isandlwana lies at his feet alone. Hence the white washing of the facts, and the drift getting all the praise. To provide cover for a Leader who failed to take his adversary seriously or respect them. Those white cairns are proof of that. Just my humble 2 cents.

I think your find, Dumford was the one who was responsible for the loss of the camp. He took command, which he should not have done, he was ordered to move up and reinforce the camp. As the good Lord Chelmsford said, "But I left more than 1,000 men to guard the camp!”

Those men were under the command of Col Dumford.

It was Chelmsford who made the decision to send Dartnell out to scout with a force of men totally unprepared to face an attack.

This is one of the worse decisions made during the war and there really is no one to blame but him given he was in complete charge at that time.
