PostSubject: colonial volunteers   Thu Dec 01, 2011 2:55 pm

Hello

Who knows how many there were NCO's (lance corporal, corporal, lance sergeant, sergeant, staff sergeant ,ect...) of buglers and trumpeter at Isandhlwana in the:
- British mounted infantry
- Natal Mounted Police
- Natal Carbineers
- Newcastle Mounted Rifles
- Buffalo Border Guards
- Sikali's Horse, 3 Troops
- Horse Edentale
- Horse Hlubi
Their rank chevrons were the same as in the infantry and color identical?
Cheers

Hi Pascal.
Sorry to say I cant find any information dealing with the Rank Chevrons of the Colonial forces compared to the Imperial forces.
I can give you details of the British rank chevrons if that is of any help . This information is in ' British Forces In Zululand 1879 '
by Ian Knight and Colour Plates by Richard Scollins .
cheers 90th. Idea
