Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Can anyone confirm, if this is true.

John Dunn sent a messenger to Cetshwayo shortly after Isandlwana saying

" If he wanted to remain King of all his land he must strike a sever blow, while there was only one British column left in Zulu land.

And is it true that Cetshwayo sent a message to Kruger asking him to join with him to push the British back to the sea.

Hi Dave .
I find this strange for the simple reason Dunn accompanied the invasion and would therefore be putting his own health at risk
further down the track so to speak !.
cheers 90th.

Dave. not sure where your source lies. But This is in the book i'm reading. I think your find this has already been spoke about before on the forum.

But let's not forget the British put John Dunn in a very awkward position. He stood the chance of losing everything.

Perhaps the green-eyed monster had crept in somewhere, see highlighted in yellow.

" After Isandhlwana, J, Dunn sent a message to Cetshwayo saying that if he wished to be king of the ' whole country .now was the time for him to strike a blow, as there was only one column now to resist him, And this double-dyed traitor has been just appointed by Sir G. Wolseley to be ruler of the largest of his thirteen provinces, where, with his native wives and concubines, to whom he may add at his pleasure, he will set a splendid example of morality.However, Cetshwayo did not yield to Mr. J. Dunn's advice, and refused all along to ravage the" colony when he had it completely at his mercy. And now we see the reward he gets for such moderation."
