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 old brother

Since the time!

I also know that this regiment was affiliated with uDududu, he was at Isandhlwana with the right horn for I.Knight, but after Julian, he was not at Isandhlwana ...

Maybe the color of their shields was the same as that of uDududu ...

I now have more than one hundred figures, all different from one another, for the six regiments of the Zulu right horn at Isandhlwana ...

Cheers

From the information complied by Fynney the Mbubi (Mbube) shields were Black with White spots same as the Udududu. They were both part of the Nodwengu corps.

Yes, thank you Jeff, I thought so, and will make them their shields in the style of uDududu.

Cheers
