Hi all

Above, it was written : "John Laband independently confirms, in his book, ‘The Anglo-Zulu War,’ that Somopho’s force comprised 115 companies of over 100 men each, totalling some 12,000 attacking force "


Anyone knows the source of this quotation of Laband ???. I've never heard of a source or it is stated that there were 115 companies in the Zulu Royal Army at Gingindlovu. The Zulu Royal Army of 12,000 Zulu warriors, yes, but 115 companies in the Zulu Royal Army at 100 men each, no.

nor Gingindlovu, nor in other battles ...

Here is the organizational structure of the Zulu army in this battle:


uVe 500 Warriors 10 Amaviyo

Ngobamakhosi 4900 70

umCijo 3000 60

Umhlanga 500 10

uMbonambi 1000 20

uThulwane 1500 30

Total 11,400 190

Cheers

Pascal

Hi all

I made the organization of the zulu royal army at Gingindlovu by deduction of contemporary sources.

We know the names of the zulu regiments who participated in the battle of Gingindhlovu and we know the number of men in each regiment at the beginning of the war.

Must reduce the numbers a bit because of the killed of Isandhlwana Rorke's Drift Hlobane and Kambula and we arrive at a figure between 11.400 to 12.000 warriors for Gingindlovu...

Cheers

Hi Pascal

Given their numbers, this battle of Gingindlovu like the battle of Ulundi are inglorious and shameful victory for the British.
