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.

Was there any particular colonial force during the Zulu War the Zulu’s feared most? To a point where they would rather run than fight.
And its there any documention with a Zulu view to this force . if there was one.

PostSubject: feared colonial force.   The most feared Colonial force EmptyThu Oct 08, 2009 10:05 am

hi littlehand.
I have never read anywhere of a colonial force putting the wind up the zulu"s , Its more to the
point I think , The zulu"s werent scared of anyone , I seem to remember reading that the zulu"s
werent keen on facing mounted troops , dont know where I read it !. If I remember rightly It may
have come from " LUCKY ESSEX " one of the 5 officers that survived Isandlwana.
hope this helps .
cheers 90th.
