Were there any documented accounts of rivalry between the armed forces during the Zulu War? (I.e.) between the Army and the Navy as they often fought together on land. And did this cause problem for the officers of both departments.

For instance the well-known rivalry between the Royal Marines and the Parachute Regiment , which are part of the Army and the Royal Navy, respectively, in the UK.

Since some of their capabilities overlap, pressure can be put on the political or civilian decision makers to choose one or the other.

A lot of the so called rivalry reported between various parts of the armed forces is no more than service banter which
people who have not served do not understand, it does not cause any problems on operations l found that the
Royal Marines and Parachute Regiment work very well together, no doubt it was the same for the Royal Navy and
the Army during the Zulu and all the other wars sailors were landed from warships

Rather than rivalry, there seemed to be a lot of friendship between the two services. Naval Officers ashore were serving under Army command, and were always offering whatever assistance they could.

Surgeon Norbury recorded that on November 24, 1878 as the Naval Brigade was arriving at For Pearson "A few hundred yards to the left was a camp of a detachment of the 2nd Batt., 3rd Regt. (the Buffs) under Capt. Forster. The men turned out as we marched by, and on a soldier calling 'three cheers for the blue jacket,' the men cheered
most cordially."

Captain W. C. F. Molyneux while serving with the Eshowe Relief Column noted that "sailors are the best comrades in rough times; nothing puts them out."

After the war Lord Chelmsford wrote "It is with pride and satisfaction I am able to report that during the whole time I was commanding Her Majesty's forces in South Africa, the Navy and Army worked together with peerfect unamity and that the relations between the two services were always of the most friendly nature."
