This old and grainy picture depicts two members of the No 1 Section of the Driefontein Scouts, Jabez Molefe (left) and Simeon Kambule (right) who were two Zulu men, amongst others, who were involved in many courageous acts in the AZW, saving the lives of others. Jabez was the trooper who later recovered the body of Col Durnford from the Isandlwana battleground and brought it back to Fort Napier in Pietermaritzburg for final interment.

Cheers Barry, I love these old photos.

"Jabez Molife and Simeon Khambule, both of whom had served during the Anglo-Zulu War in 1879, came from a community of amakholwa (Christians) and had a close relationship with Samuelson. A group of 200 amakholwa scouts from Driefontein were raised under the leadership of the Edendale chiefs Mini, Molife and Khambule. The black scouts provided their own horses and equipment.(6) The number of scouts employed by both the British and Boer sides rose during the war as the value of their intelligence work became more widely recognised."
