Please forgive me ignorance, but my knowledge on Christian Ferdinand Schiess is very limited. I'm a bit confused as to which unit he was serving with? Was he Natal Mounted Police as the film suggests or was he Natal Native Contingent?

Hi

He was in the 2nd Battalion of the 3rd Natal Native Infantry Contingent (2/3 NNIC)

He was a patient in the hospital at RD - there has been some debate lately but it is said that he had a badly blistered foot.

Cheers

Cheers Sime, so he wasn't in the Natal Police at all then, just something they've added to the film? At least the injured foot bit is true.

Hi

The film took one or two liberties - sadly many of them have gone down (in the public mind) to be truth.

There were 3 members of the NMP at RD - Lugg, Hunter and Green (I think), but FS was an NCO of the NNIC.

Thanks

Sime
