- Any ordered British unit (regardless of strength), that exits the battlefield from the British side,  will count as a Victory Banner for the British Army.  Note: Any retreating (because of flags) British unit cant leave the board like this, and must stop at the board edge  and loose 1 Block for each hex, the unit couldn´t retreat.

Special Rules 
- Hill Plateau: All the hexes between the left and right hill ridges  (Center section) have the same level and are treated as hills also.

- Zulu Reinforcements: There are 2 reinforcement forces (left flank and right flank), consists of 4 units Zulus and 1 Leader each. Each single Zulu Reinforcement unit can be setup on one of the marked left or right edge hexes, if they get an appropriate order of the played command card. This units may move in the turn, they arrive the battlefield (Terrain restrictions apply), the inital setup hex counts as first movement hex and they may battle, if possible. Example: If a Zulu Attack Right is played, 1-3 Zulu Right Reinforcement units may be placed or this orders can be used for already placed units or you can spread up the number of orders between the Reinforcements and already placed units.
