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

I have just finished reading Zulu Rising by Ian Knight - an epic read btw. He sets out the scenes really well and it is mainly all based on contemporary first hand accounts.

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 .
