Hi all

With pictures of every companies of the 1/24 th present at Isandhlwana, allegedly made just before the start of the campaign, would not it be possible to count the number of soldiers from each of them for this battle company by company and to have the numbers of men in each company the 22, has one or two men near ...

It would take later pictures as possible of these five companies ...

Salute

Hi Pascal .
Many soldiers were sick with fever and werent with the camp at Isandlwana , company strength was down on the normal totals .
This we will never know by how many as the records dont exist . Some companies I've read were down to 70 or 80 men .
Julian may be the best qualified to comment on Company strength on the 22nd Jan .
cheers 90th. Salute

But counting the soldiers of the five companies on the photos taken just before Isandhlwana, one might get an idea ...

Hi Pascal .
Company strength was about 100 Other Ranks plus NCO'S and Officers , possibly 120 total . There is no possible way
we can know the strength of the companies at Isandlwana . Suspect Suspect Suspect .
cheers 90th.

Yes gary

I know the exact total number for these five companies Wink , but nobody will ever know the size of each company, because the Zulu had eaten all the regiment administrative paper's. Sad

Sacred Zulus

Hi Pascal .

It was not difficult for them because they swallowed all pharmaceuticals mixtures as they found in the camp , so that it slides better Wink ...

There was dead after this, still a Victorian secret weapon Wink
