Springbok,

No names on the photograph, but if that line matches up with an engraving that appears in The Graphic then you are looking at Mnyamana, Ntshingwayo being amongst the group.

I showed this photograph to H.R.H. Prince M. G. Buthelezi and he was quite taken by the fact his forebear Mnyamana could have been in the photograph, as there is no recorded photograph of him.

I sat next to HRH at a fund raiser, quite a long time ago, he was a magnificent orator, raconteur. I mentioned at one point my interest in the wars. With a very large twinkle in his eyes he said," we won you know, but the British wouldnt let us tell anyone."
Lovely man.

Salute

Impi,

No it from a series of photographs taken in August/September 1879, the focus of the photographs is Wolseley's advance on Ulundi concluding with the surrender on 1st September 1879.

I did have another photograph taken at the surrender; but from another angle. In that photograph some of the topographical features are apparent and is clearly Ulundi.
