Can anyone tell me what life was like in a soldier's camp? Did they eat at their tents or were tables set up? what was a typical day like when they weren't fighting? What time did they get up and go to bed? How did they wash, shave, keep their uniforms clean etc

Hi Horsefixer.
From memory after Isandlwana , I dont think the Troops with Chelmesford had the use of tents , they weren't taken on the second invasion , happy to be corrected .
