These images seem to show two groups wearing a kind of uniform. They are from an album of photos which were all taken around 1875/80 in Natal (includes Cetshwayo, his wives, Goza etc.) Any thoughts about who they are gratefully received.

Steve,

The trio on the left I would suggest are native police officers.  There is a very good engraving depicting that uniform that appears in The Illustrated London News of 25th October 1879, entitled Kaffir Women selling sugar-came in Pietermaritzburg.

I also recall seeing another engraving in the ILN of the REsident Magistrate in Ladysmith collecting the hut-tax accompanying by men dressed in the same attire.
