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.

Hello and Happy New Year 2013 to all and a very good health Especially in 2013, this is the MOST important ...

Long Service and Good Conduct stripes Were Awarded to qualifying privates and lance - corporals, to a maximun of seven badges, for 2,5,12,18,21 and 26 years' service ...

A Isandhlwana or in another battle of the zulu war , there were guys with 26 years of service, which were only privates or lance - corporals !???

Cheers

Pascal
