Can anyone tell me what the N/5 did once they arrived in SA in mid 1878? How did they travel, how were the guns transported. I know they fought at Isandlwana and Ulundi but I cannot find info about what they did inbetween. Were they just hanging around at Rorke's Drift waiting for orders?

Go to the SA Military History Society's website and search for the Centenary Edition of the Military History Journal. There is an article by the late Major Darrell Hall on the artillery during the Anglo-Zulu War, with comprehensive details about all the batteries. I'm in Estonia at the moment, so don't have access of course to all my notes, but if Darrell's article doesn't answer your queries, get back to me and I'll try to help on my return. Regards, Ken
