Anyone ever heard of this before.

"July 4th The cool manner in which the Infantry behaved whilst standing the press upon their ranks of thousands of these semi-barbarians and the half smile on their faces when (after taking steady aim) their shot took effect was amusing. Some instances of good swordsmanship were also remarkable. One officer cut a stalwart Zulu warrior completely in halves, another officer after narrowly escaping a serious assegai wound thrown with such force and precision as to go through his cloak and into the wallet of the saddle, severed the head from the hapless fellow who [threw] it."

Hi all .
I'm sure this question was asked somewhere on the forum but this is as good a place as any for this post .
From the Diary Of Lewis Reynolds . Part of his entry for 11th July .
'' The Zulu's at Ulundi came much closer than is generally believed - they came within 28 yds of the 21st Regt , when the
sappers reinforced them - the Gatlings were working at a range of 150 yds most of the time '' .
cheers 90th.
