Hi everyone

If the 24 th infantry companies have started their fire on the Zulus at 600 yards as LC had instruted Pulleine ...

Assuming that the 24 th Infantry companies remained 120 mm on the line of fire, how far the 24 th Infantry companies were of the Zulu masses when they fell back ?

Cheers

Good question. I believed the Zulu were almost upon them before they fell back, other Compaines were cut off.

good evening

I think all companies have not folded in the same time ...

This depended on intelligence and tactical intelligence of the officers ...

There was a lot in advance for not beings catches up before entering the camp ...

Cheers
