Hello to all

A Hlobane, there were two Rocket Party :

The party of the Major Tremblett - 7 officers and men + 1 rocket trough.

And that of the Lieut.Bigge, RA. - 10 officers and men + 1 rocket trough.

1 - Knowing by whom, were served the 2 Armstrong 6 - pdrs,I'd like to know if all the servants of these two rocket troughs were men of the RA?

2 - How is it that there is to serve each of these two rocket troughs, three times more men than to serve those of the rocket battery at Isandhlwana ?...

Cheers

Pascal

Lesson learn't's?

That means that the men of the 24 th foot were inaptent for serving rocket launchers ?

And the organization of the 4 th column was ready well before Isandhlwana ...

Hlobane wasn't a camp as such, they were attacked while attempting to capture cattle.

The subject, this is :

1 - Knowing by whom, were served the 2 Armstrong 6 - pdrs,I'd like to know if all the servants of these two rocket troughs were men of the RA ?

2 - How is it that there is to serve each of these two rocket troughs, three times more men than to serve those of the rocket battery at Isandhlwana ?...
