Taking into account Littlehands post. I'm thinking it might be worth while posting the insignia of the colonial regiments,we have the NMP but what about the others could be a worth while project. Just a thought.

Hi Chard / 24th .
Osprey Publishing has released a book titled ' Zulu War - Volunteers , Irregulars & Auxiliaries ' by Ian Castle and Illustrated by
Raffaele Ruggeri , which has pictures showing the more common Colonial Insignia & Uniforms . It's easy to come by on ebay but many times the price is way to high , you can source it cheaper by scouring the internet book sites .
cheers 90th. Idea

Hi 90th

See my posting on 'I'm sure someone will know', it just might be a broken badge of the Natal Carbineers.

Regards, Martin.

Thanks Admin

If you take off the crown and the curly end of the 'N', it looks a good match for the badge on the helmet that the soldier in the picture is wearing. So it just might be a 'cast off' helmet with a broken badge.

Martin.
