Hi all

But what happened to the hundreds of tents of the camp of Isandhlwana ?

They are burned during the battle ?

They rotted there ?

Zulus have recovered some ?

And the defenders have they removed some before or during the battle ?

Cheers

Pascal

Hi Rascal.
Most of the tents or what was left of them after the battle were taken by the zulu army , more than likely to help them carry away
the spoils of their victory .

Hi Marsupial

Who said that ? And after they do with it ?

And the defenders have they removed some before or during the battle ?

Yet the British military reglement was demanding this, in case of attack !

Rascal .
The defenders didnt remove any tents , as they were needed for the march into zululand . From ' Companion to the Anglo zulu war '
by Ian Knight , page 211 . '' There were blankets , and if there were not enough to go round the TENTS could be pulled down and the Canvas cut into strips as a substitute ''.

In the past you told me that Pulleine had received from LC, the order to break the camp and join him at the same time that the Zulu attack began ...

Pulleine did not know the reglement in case of attack ? And after so , those with LCcould see that the camp was attacked...

90th he wasn't exactly ordered to Packup camp.


"Statement by Captain Alan Gardner, 14th Hussars. Camp, Rorke's  Drift, January 26, 1879."

"I LEFT the force with the General about 10.30 A.M., and rode back to Isandlana Camp, with the order to Lieutenant-Colonel. Pulleine to send on the camp equipage and supplies of the  troops camping out, and to remain himself at his present camp,"

But either way, it was to late. 5 hours prior he done nothing!

Bravo LH Very Happy

After LC instructions ,Pulleine had to stay in the camp with all his troops ?

And return all hismaterials in its 106 carTs and wagons to LC ?

But in LC instructions, it is not even a escort question ?
