Hello

Why Pearson you it decided to stay in Eshowe?

It seems that Chelmsford have not forced this ...

In any case, British soldiers are still not down to the death ...

In 72 days of siege, 35 men died of disease and more Dozens Many Had to Be Carried back to the Thukela in cars ...

Many of these will die as well, not counting those who perished to meet Eshowe before, during and after the Battle of Gingindlovu ...

Cheers

Pascal

Hi Pascal .
This has also been covered before , you really need to look at the old posts . Pearson wanted to make a statement to the zulu's
basically the british army has invaded and were staying even after the Isandlwana disaster . They also werent sure where the zulu army was so it helped the decision makers to stay put . Chelmesford gave him a choice he could withdraw if he wanted or could stay .
Cheers 90th.

Gary all about have already been addressed on the forum ...

Also makes the restart in another form will refresh and the news enregistred to be interested ...

Pearson remained for me to Eshowe for nothing, soldiers suffered and died for nothing ...

Cheers

Hi Pascal .
You must look at these decisions not from 2012 but 1879 ! . Pearson didnt know 35 men would die at Eshowe !! . He also could have been
wiped out to a man if he left Eshowe and was caught in the open . Dont forget he'd had a battle on the 22nd and had a very good idea what he would have been up against if he was caught in open country . As I said , Chelmesford gave him a choice and I think he made the right one , he did send all the mounted Colonial and Native troops back to Fort Tenedos . You have to look at all these happenings with the mindset of the Victorian army of 1879 , not wonderful hindsight of today . Shocked
cheers 90th. Idea

Bonjour Garry

Eh bien justement,ayant triomphé le 22 ,il pouvait peut etres rentrer sans risques ?

Il a été choqué par la nouvelle de Isandhlwana et c'est imaginé assaillis par l'armée zouloue au complet avant d'arriver au Natal..?

Hello Agaist Garry

I do not wake up I type in French ...

Well in fact, having triumphed on 22, he could return can be safe?

He was shocked by the news of Isandhlwana and it is imagined attacked in full by the Zulu army before arriving in Natal ..?

Cheers

Pascal
