Hi Rascal .
You may have seen this but thought I'd post it anyway . From ' The Battle Of Ulundi ' by John Laband .
'' The British Infantry - and the following figures exclude the Colonial Mounted Units for which there is no tally - Fired some 35,000 Rounds . This was exclusive of Artillery fire , which amounted in it's turn to 90 Rounds of Artillery ammunition and 3 rockets shot at KwaNodwengu. Rounds fired were calculated at between 7 and 6.4 per infantryman.
Cheers 90th. Salute

thank you Marsupial

What a joy to read this in the morning, you make you account for the bulk of ammunition necessary to kill and injure 1500 Zulu !

Were calculated rounds fired at betweens 7 and 6.4 per infantryman.And this by half an hour! ... It's been a cartridge fired for each men in every 4 minutes 41 seconds to a cartridge for each men by every 4 minutes 17 seconds!

Ulundi, it was real holiday for the imperial infantry !

A Isandhlwana, they learned the great maximun of 190 cartridges by men in 60 minutes on the line of fire, it makes us 3,16 cartridges fired by each men in 60 seconds (using all the ammo on them and the 9600 who were in each ammunition carts of each company) because they had to stop the fire, three x 10 minutes (in order to take new cartridges in the ammunition carts ...)

But as it certainly was a lot of ammunition in ammunition carts of each company, he had to fire fewer cartridges per men that I say and less quickly, despite their desperate situations...

In fact it is far from theoretical cadences of shots ...

Cheers

Pascal the Rascal
