Hi all

At Isandhlwana, there were more whites killed in the camp or outside the camp?

Cheers

The most whites would have been killed in the camp, most of the 24th regiment were, as were nearly all
the volunteers and gunners.

Most of the naives would have been killed on the trail.

Are you sure?

This is after the bodies found?

Why would the blacks they fell outside the camp?

I've read somewhere else, in fact Isandhlwana was a massacre of fleeing ...

Cheers

The NNC and NNH broke ranks and fled most being able to get over the Saddle.

The 24th didn't break ranks and most Coys were found in the camp, see Bassage, Black, Forbes, Newman.

All the civilains quit the field and most would have been able to get over the saddle.
