Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

A Isandhlwana, the size of each of the companies of the 1/24 th is unknown, as the papers of the battalion were eaten by the Zulu ...

But Ulundi is a victory, then, please, is there a brave soul on this forum who could tell me the exact strength of each of the companies of the 2/21 st in this battle ?

I only know that there were two companies with a total of  11 officers - 205 NCO's and braves soldiers and six horses ...

Obligatorily, some are out ranks and do not belong to these two companies, over which companies were there? A ? B? C? ect...



Thank you in advance

Hi Rascal .
As with all records no two are the same whether it's a victory or a loss , in my copy of  ' They Fell Like Stones ' by John Young , the strength of the 2 / 21st is 12 officers ( one of which was on attached duty from 3rd Royal Lancashire Militia ) and 203 Ranks . I doubt you'll find anywhere the exact number , precise record keeping in the field I doubt was a priority and possibly very difficult to enforce .

What I have said, comes from "Narrative of the field operations connected with the Zulu war of 1879" they never agree on anything it is , the historians Mad❌x
