Map of Kambula

The areas defended by the 13th and 90th LI, as well as the artillery and mounted troops, are in red on this map taken from Henry Everett's History of the Somerset Light Infantry. In the bottom right corner is '300 of Wood's Irregulars' but they are not mentioned in any of the accounts of the battle of Kambula. The 2nd Battalion of these Zulu irregulars mostly deserted at Hlobane.
