Hi Pascal .
I think so as they wanted a fight !. I'm certain the road is uphill from R.D and quite possibly the zulu when arriving
at the deserted post may have been able to see them attempting to flee on the road . It wouldnt take the zulus long to catch them up , and kill them very quickly one would think in the open !.
Cheers 90th.

Cheers
