What do people think of this figure. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I also copied part of the last controversial paragraph from the advert.

At about 4.30pm, 3-4000 Zulus including the uThulwana's attacked the mission buildings which by then had been fairly well fortified by B Company, 2nd Battalion, 24th Regiment. The initial Zulu frontal attack was led by the iNdluyengwe ibutho, the uThulwana's behind swung round the mission to attack through the gardens from the North. Fierce fighting ensued with the defenders grimly holding onto every inch of the defences. By last light the situation was critical. With casualties rising, the Welshmen held on throughout the night and at dawn on the 23rd the Zulu force began a general withdrawal into Zululand.
