Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Royal artillery sub unit at Isandlwana Empty
PostSubject: Royal artillery sub unit at Isandlwana   Royal artillery sub unit at Isandlwana EmptySat Jun 10, 2017 8:22 pm

Hi
At Isandlwana, 2 guns of N/5th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, were left behind.

Does anyone what this detachment have been called?

Would it have been a section? If so did the battery have established sub units or was it purely an ad hoc  arrangement.

Or would it have been referred to by its commanders name?

I have bought the William Britain’s Zulu war field gun model and would like to put a name plaque on the display case.

Its not really important but I am a little OCD about such things......

Thanks

Simon

Simon,

Six field pieces to a battery, each battery was sub-divided into three sections of two guns.

I will scan an image of a battery limbered and drawn-up when I can to illustrate this.
