Thanks 90th.

Hi. E.H. I sometimes get e-mails from friends who sent me bits about the Zulu War. Sometimes I post them, sometimes not. I mainly post these items for reference purposes, in the event someone is looking for a particular persons/ regiment ECT.

At the outbreak of war

The artillery available consisted of:
N/5 Battery - Six 7 pr 200 lb Rifled Muzzle Loading (RML) guns on Colonial or Kaffraria carriages.
Two rocket troughs.

This field battery arrived in the Cape Colony in 1878, and took part in the closing stages of the war against Sandili. The battery then marched to Pietermaritzburg with a column under Col E. Wood VC. Field batteries were normally equipped with 9 prs at this time, but this battery had 7 prs. These were thought to be more mobile and better suited to South African conditions. N/5 only appears to have had two rocket troughs. Rockets are not always mentioned in contemporary accounts when the armament of batteries is detailed, so they will only be mentioned below where accounts of the war have specifically mentioned their presence.
11/7 Battery - Six 7 pr 200 lb RMLs, mule drawn.
Three rocket troughs.
Garrison batteries manned coast defence, heavy and siege guns, and, at the other extreme, mountain guns. Some batteries were deployed in such stations as Gibraltar, Hong Kong and the Cape in a coast defence role. 11/7 Battery had a field role and was stationed in Natal. The 7 prs were probably on mountain carriages but there is no specific evidence on this point.

Julian, this from SAMHS.

Following doesn't answer your question directly. N5 arrived in January 1878 (Maj. Gen. Dalton RA Journal) . Many officers and men of 11/7 received the 77/78 bar for action against the Galekas (medal roll) as well as the Zulus in '79, so it seems likely they arrived at the same time as N5.

I don't believe they did arrive at the same time as N/5. I think they were there much earlier than Jan '78.
I just can't seem to find out exactly when!
