Hi Marsupial

No Marsupial ! who is the idiot who sent a convoy in northern Zululand, with such a small escort, a Mongoose who had not heard of Isandhlwana ?

Cheers

Hi Rascal .
I think Wood officially heard of the disaster about 5 or 6 days after the event , not sure about Pearson but most likely similar .
I do believe Wood's Swazi's and Zulu's knew earlier due to the zulu army passing along information throughout the country .

Thank you to both of them,Marsupial and Impi .

But it would put you in accordance, because 9hrs and 5 or 6 days this is not the same ...

Now what remains to be explained to them, the commander of the fifth column or Wood by LC ?

If one of these last two have in charge, should never have sent such a small escort with 17 Wagons ...

The commander of the fifth column or Wood did not have very good sense of what happened on January 22, if one of them has decided to send only a company escort for these 17 Wagons...

If it is LC, it is unforgivable, LC knew it, the weakness of the 17 escort Wagons ? This is he who ordered this mission ? ...

Cheers
