Found an account by a Zulu that sounds like Durnfords stand.


One company of soldiers under a one armed man, he seemed to me to only have one arm
(who shot four Zulus with his revolver) I saw as I neared the nek, march in good order up to the
side of Isandhlwana among the rocks under the corner facing the tents on the right of the road
leading into Zululand, taking the wounded as they were struck along with them and stood at bay
there until the afternoon was far spent.



What does the mean warrior by marched in good order??
This could only have happened during the retreat.


Cheers

Hi

I mean he is talking about Durnfords men Marching in good order to the stonny koppie.

But they would have been rushing and firing all the way.

It was wrote by a warrior interviewed by Symons.

Good evening

Durnford like many others do not panic.

"We remain grouped ! " "We walk quietly and we shot on target priority calmly !" "Old Steady Shot !" ...

And as 20% of men and 80% of NCOs in the 24 th are "old timers", good shooters, especially at this short range and all champions of fencing to the bayonet, the brave Zulu who had a maximun of novices in their army have suffered terribly.

In addition, one against one, the Zulu warriors are melee disadvantage, because their arms are too short and the shields can protect the British Steel.

Their musket fire and their throwing weapons have been more effectively ...

Good night

Cheers

Hello

Sorry, but the battery of rockets did not stand with the last stand of Durnford ...
She was attacked before, since it does not have Durnford preoccupation ...
This is what it is to mix fast troops and troops slow, that's why Custer did not want the battery of Gatling with his regiment of cavalry in the campaign of 1876.

Cheers
