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.

Hi Gary

Then posted on the roofs of buildings of Rorcke's Drift, any youth Zulu see the fugitives, the 500 to 700 inDluyengwe pursued after them, overtaken the british in the open countryside and killing all the fugitives before 19.00 pm avec the help of 3000 to 4400 married warriors...

Cheers
