N/5 Artillery Empty
PostSubject: N/5 Artillery   N/5 Artillery EmptyThu Feb 03, 2011 7:03 am

The N/5 arrived in SA mid 1878.
1.How did they get their equipment ashore at East London, since work had only just begun on the harbour and breakwater?
2.Did they bring their own horses/mules from England?
3. How did they get from King to Maritzburg? March? Train?
4. How did they get to Isandlwana? via Helpmekaar? When?
Thanks.

I think Woolwich played a big part, with its numerous jetties. Along the Thames toward Medway then out to sea.
