"One young Zulu, a light-hearted, talk-ative fellow, sat there descanting by the hour on things in general. He had been shot in the leg at Isandhlwana soon after the fight commenced, and had lain on the ground until two of his brothers carried him out of harm's way, so was not able to see the end. I put in a suggestion to the effect that it was better to be shot through the leg at the beginning of the fight than through the head at the end of it, which aspect of the case seemed vastly to tickle his imagination, for he went into a fit of laughter and agreed emphatically with the idea."

I don't suppose he gave it much thought John. Perhaps he was just being selfish laying there with a MH Slug in his leg.. Rolling Eyes

Hi
In any case, given the levels of the Zulu medicine, the majority of theirs wounded died of gangrene or sepsis

Cheers
