Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

Hi littlehand.
The Fingoes according to Evelyn Wood were the remnants of 8 tribes which banded together after fleeing the zulus a few years earlier .. They fought on the British side in the Kaffir war of 77-78 .

It appears Frank was also a collector.

Frank N Streatfeild, resident magistrate in Kaffraria and commandant of native levies during the Ninth Frontier War of 1878, provides a particularly disturbing example:

'I brought a great many curiosities … of various descriptions, such as pipes, necklaces, assegais, beaded blankets, etc, etc. Whenever I saw a native with anything worth having, I at once proceeded to get an interpreter and have a deal. There was a ridiculous scene one morning when I was buying blankets from a Fingo woman. I bid very high for them, as I had no time to waste, nor did I desire to "marchander" with the dirty creatures. Though anxious to obtain the money offered, they were somewhat shy about uncovering their tawny hides, and as they parted with a petticoat or wrapper, they huddled up to the nearest woman, vainly endeavouring to cover their nakedness with the corner of the blanket of their next neighbour. I got much chaffed on the subject, and was told that I was positively indecent in bribing Fingo women to sell their garments, and go about the streets in a state of semi-nudity.'
