Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

No general Zulu have tried to restrain him or sent messengers to bring back his troops?

And how long should it around for a impi to go to RD from Isandhlwana? About an hour but it swerved off the track and crossed below RD, so add 30 mins. It also rested for half an hour and took 30 mins to get up from the river to RD.
