Hello

Of the 35 wounded and sick (if the exact number) present at Rorke's Drift

1 / How many were combat-capable and therefore have fought ?

2 / Qui they were and what units ?

3 / Et except the surgeon, how many were combat-capable, but have not fought because they were too busy, as the surgeon for example ?...

Cheers

Pascal

Hi Pascal.
This information does not exist as far as I'm aware . Record keeping doesnt seem to have been a major priority
as the Garrison was preparing and fought off the zulu attack .

good evening

I'll make the 139 defenders of Rorke's Drift and the dog named pipe because they are too good, the good guys ...

What I think is certain is that of 35 patients in the hospital, there are 30 who had not the strength to fight. I represent by figures lying in bed?

But then, what color regulations are the covers of hospital beds in the British army in 1879?

Thank you and good night

Cheers

Bonjour Pascal,

Basically none, other than those too incapacitated in the hospital to stand up.
Even the Vicar became an ammunition runner to the parapets.
Remembering too, that Tpr Lugg NMP who was injured in hospital and saw fit to climb out of bed and do more than his piece. In that battle he became a legend. RIP, GwazamaZulu. Idea

regards

Hello Barry

So there are many 30 patients lying in the hospital and five patients OK who will fight, LUGG and SCHIESS included...

So with the dog PIP, there are 110 fighters ... + 30 patients lying INCLUDING a black ...The name of this black is ?

LUGG suffered enough?

I have a figurine of NMP injured who will be perfect for him .

And his two colleagues in the police, they were able ...?

Cheers

Pascal

Oh I forgot, the 5 patients who are able to fight?

LUG, SCHIESS and the other three?

Cheers

Pascal
