Any ideas as to who these men where??

It Isandlwana


One party of soldiers came out from among the tents and formed up a little above the ammunition waggons. They held their ground there until their ammunition failed them, when they were nearly all assegaied

Hi

They were part of the detail of the battalion and therefore did not go into battle with the companies ...

See the list of units from 24 th I had put in the subject "Zulu army at Isandhlwana," there is always a maximum of people who are not in combat companies in each battalion...

Cheers

Pascal

The odd bodies were gathered and sent down to join Pope earlier so its unlikly that they would be the group refered to.
Possibilities remain of Younghusband withdrawing through the tented area to the saddle and then onto the mountain skirt.

This is what Pulliene said after around 20 miniutes of the battle

March all the men who can carry arms out of the camp.

Hi

When the battle is well underway, Pulleine must find that much of imperial infantry in the camp, but that's normal since Isandhlwana was the rear base of Chelmsford, so there are people, including imperial infantry not being part of the combat companies ...

The 6 company commander at the front would have liked to have with them ...

You can imagine the weaknesses of each company at the front , and all inextended order Allowed Between Three paces between each man (7 - 1 / 2 ft)

It is to cry, it was the deployment orders of Chelmsford coming straight from the settlement of 1877...

Cheers

Pascal
