Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

If that table is correct its done what historians for years have been attempting to do, put a figure on the attacking force for isandlwana. It also intimates that the Ukhandampevu and the iNgobamakhosi took part in 4 horrendous battles and never lost a man? Thats damn good fighting!

Interesting...it also seems to round to the nearest 500...and as Springbok says, the Zulus lose no men in any of the battles!?!?
5000 men at RD is consistent with contemporary estimates, isn't it?
