The sphinx. The shape of the Lion.

(Many soldiers were superstitious about the shape of Isandlwana, as it closely resembled the Sphinx on their regimental badge).

Correct, its signel hill cape town, those companies based at cape castle would have seen it when they arrived, it bears a striking similarity to isandlwana, the last thing they saw.
