Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

On the 21st of May, 4 months after the fight, the British at last returned to the destroyed camp site to bury the dead. Archibald Forbes was present and wrote

In a patch of long grass, near the right flank of the, lay Durnford’s body, the long moustache still clinging to the withered skin of the face. Captain Shepstone recognized him at once, and identified him yet farther by rings on the finger and a knife with the name on it in the pocket, which relics were brought away. Durnford had died hard-a central figure of a knot of brave men who had fought it out around there chief to the bitter end. A stalwart Zulu covered by his shield lay at the Colonel’s feet"

Because i wrote on article on papers being removed from Durnford's body and i had to look all the
eyewitness accounts held at the RE museum. Jabez Molife and others all left statments on what Durnfords
body looked like and what he was wearing.
