I’m not sure, which Battle possibly Sihayo’s Cave? but there seems to have been a misunderstanding of orders issued by Degacher to a Lieutenant. Doe’s anyone know what the orders were and did it lead to some kind if disaster. Idea

From what I can remember, Coghill had gone off to capture some cattle, Degacher had sent an order to Coghill before hand, ordering him and his company to join the force that was going to attack , Coghill maintained that he had received no orders. Lieutenant Mainwaring sent for the Sergeant Major to whom Degacher had given the task of delivering the message to Coghill. He admitted that he had not understood the orders he received for Coghill. (So didn't mention it)

Mainwaring stated after that he had learnt a very important lesson.

“Unclear Orders Can Be Misunderstood.”

We know the out-come of the attack on Sihayo’s Kraal. So no real disaster. scratch

Happy to be corrected.

So was it a case of Coghill just going off to capture some cattle. When he knew an attack had been planned. scratch
