90th,

Admittedly he was on horseback up until the Buffalo River, but Horace Smith-Dorrien made his escape from the river through to Helpmekaar on foot.

Agree Jimu , but I think Pascal is only referring to those that left Isandlwana on foot . Several from memory were unhorsed at the Buffalo and managed to survive .

There are no statistics ? As there were few white survivors, it should be known , no ?...

In addition, all the fugitives did not take the same route, so it also had to play on survival ...

Besides those who fled earlier than others ...
