Two questions if you please...

Were British Snipers deployed during the Zulu war, the reason I ask is there is quite a lot mentioned with reference to Zulu Snipers.

Also is there any particular British Soldier that was renowned for his marksmanship during the Zulu War.

Hi Impi .
No mention of Snipers having any official roll in the war as I am aware . With the term sniping in regard to
the zulu side of things its more that they tended to fire away from distances as they did at R.D and other
actions where they had firearms . Basically its just a term that's used for explaining the zulu efforts with firearms.
After all they had no idea on sighting or distances or the like , certainly hit or miss and mostly miss :lol!: .
cheers 90th.

ps . I do remember Pvt Dunbar knocked over six I think in six shots at R.D , and one of those was a mounted Induna.
All from a long distance . I think Wood did the same at khambula 3 out of three from a fair distance , but not what you
would call sniping I would expect .
cheers again 90th.
