How much training did new recruits get before being sent to SA. I have read that some of the newbie’s did panic when they saw the Zulus. Was it a case of getting as many men out to SA after the disaster at Isandlwana, and were they really ready to undertake such action. Looking at the lack of equipment for our forces today was this also the case back in 1879.

I'm sure I've seen a post on RDVC that someone said they would fire something like 50 live rounds before seeing real action. I can't recall the exact figure, but someone said that could shoot more than that in one afternoon...

I was just wondering if there was a big influx of volunteers to join the army after the news of Isandlwana got to England. There was no doubt a few ex-soldier's keen to rejoin.
