Zulu.Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Hello Everyone, Wanted to share some of the images in my collection of the great Zulu commander Ntshingwayo. He served the Zulu royal house from Mpande to Cetshwayo and was the leading commander behind the victory of Isandlwana. He served the royal house through the bitter civil war and was killed, along with many others, at Ulundi by Zibhebhu and his forces. Even the great Zibhebhu was struck by the loss of this great commander.
I think the family might have donned a redcoat in the past. William dons the scarlet cloth in a different mode! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Not sure if that's a good thought. Possibly true!
