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.

We know it wasn’t Rorkes Drift. Could this have been Blood River?

Wouldnt think it would be Blood River. That was fought from behind a waagon lager and later on horseback. Most of the Boer/Zulu fights were from a Lager. A possibility is that its not a Zulu force but rather Shona, looking at the head gear, in which case it would be in the Northern Transvaal or Rhodesia area.

Thank Springbok.

I really don't know. I was going by the type of sheilds which I thought were only used by the zulu.

The Matabiele from Rhodesia were originally a Zulu tribe could be something like that. Seem to recall Rhodes sent a flying column up to the area composed of Boer and ex miners from the Transvaal. Could easily be a depiction of that.
Maybe even a bunch of Chelsea supporters celebrating a win????????

Dave. Traditional Zulus from Rhodesia. Notice the headdress and shields.

The weapons being used by the europeans look like flintlocks so it may be Blood River, but their dress is later

hi all.
I dont think it is from any battle , It seems plenty of artistic license was used to paint a picture showing
what it may be like when you confront african warriors in a battle situation.
cheers 90th.

ps. Forgot to add , going by the picture the battle would have been over very shortly in regard to the flintlocks
used , it seems by a native contingent.
