Hello

The Royal Artillery used Shrapnell and case shots in Zululand, but never explosive shells ...

Someone I can demonstrate otherwise ?

Pascal,

What do you think that Shrapnel shells did?

To my limited knowledge - despite the fact my father was a former artilleryman - Shrapnel shells exploded in the air on a timed fuse and caused their intended damage.

Warrior, the royal artillery had declared at this time, which would use its explosive shells, only against agglomerations, which is why she has not used in Zululand ...

Obviously, anti-personnel ordnance was the way to go.
HE shells would not have been necessary unless the targets required demolition or were armoured.

This is due to the tactics regulations of the RA that explosive shells were not used in Zululand .

Yet it is this that makes the difference in the war of 1870-71 because the German artillery used only percussive shells and theFrench artillery used only fusing shells.

At the very beginning of the war of 14-18, the BEF uses only Shrapnell which the desanvantage much ...

If RA had used 7 pdrs explosive shells in Zululand, it could shoot over 800 yards at Isandhlwana (or the 2 guns of the RA have not fired beyond 600 yards, according to the instructions of LC )and Zulu would not have loved it ...

As the cannons at Isandlwann only fired 4 times, I doubt it would have made any difference to the outcome.

I thought that a Zulu participant had counted the number of shots of cannon and that there had been more ?

I never say this, but the artillery was not much ...
