Zulu game 21/02/10

Here was our long overdue foray into Zululand. British interlopers Eason (head of the column) and Halliday (bringing up the rear at a tardy pace) were crossing the shallow drift near a handy collection of buildings.

The impis of Coutts, arrayed in typical formation began encircling and coralling the British into a tight formation around the buildings.

Despite some brave delaying tactics by Durnford at the rear of the column his NNC were obliterated! The column leading scouts fled at first sight of their ferocious opponents and were massacred within rifle shot of a watching red coated Company manning the stone walled compound.
