Can anyone advise on the effectiveness of the battery's at Isandlwana?
What range maximum & minimum they would be firing?
How long they would've been in action?
Projected casualties?
I realise this will be educated guesswork but I would appreciate your thoughts on this.
Sorry if this has been covered by other threads, I am still fairly new to this & am still working my way through the forum topics.

You might also try The Curling Letters by Best and Greaves. Curling was an RA officer with N5 Battery at Isandhlwana and survived.

Martini-Henry,

Take a look at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the technical details.

By-the-way, there were no batteries at Isandlwana merely a two cannon section from a six cannon battery, the other four cannon being out with battery's commander, Brevet Lt.-Colonel Arthur Harness, with Lord Chelmsford. Initially the section was under the command of Lieutenant Henry Curling, until Brevet Major Stuart Smith assumed command on his return to the camp, which according to Curling happened at about 12 noon.

A very complete answer sir. Can it be estimated how many shots they would have fired & to what effect on a fast moving enemy?

John Young,


It took me a while but, Lacedaemonians at The Battle of Thermopylae. Tell them in Lacedaimon, passer-by that here, obedient to their word, we lie.


Do I get any points for working it out?
