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.

Cheers

Hi Petites Mains

Post what?

I just wonder if there were many zulu last stands seen and describeby by numerous witnesses as well there have been numerous descriptions of British last stands, nobody has seen and that everyone has described ...

Cheers

I've never heard any mention of a last stand of the zulu variety . There weaponry wasnt suited to last stands , they took flight if things were going badly , many mentions of the Mtd troops chasing the fleeing zulus , no mention of last stands . I did read of an instance were a Sgt of the 17th Lancers was chasing a zulu , who did turn around to take him on but died in the effort , although I think the Lancer involved may have lost a finger ? .
Cheers 90th.

Gary

I imagined Zulu warriors exhausted that in the retreat regrouped and decided to fight to the last on the spot, unable to outrun their pursuer...

This situation had to happen, and I call it a last stand...

Cheers

Never read accounts of them making last stands. Normally they were scattered. But that's not to say they didn't. As Pascal points there must have been some regrouping at some point. The term last stands normally only relates to european armies.

Yes, but given their mentality there must have been something like this here ...
