Extract from Springboks essay.

"Once the impi was discovered it advanced over the plain towards the camp. The right horn was already in position behind the mountain."

The right horn was already in position! Of course they were going to attack on the 22nd. 

Let's just hope no one suggests they were getting in position and was going to wait until the 23rd. When I get more time will read the whole essay. Looking good Springbok!
