Is it true the some of the NNC? Ripped of their red bandanas at Isandlwana in the hope they would be seen as Zulu’s by the Zulu’s if you know what I mean. And if this were true would they have turned on the British. I can understand why they would have done this but I wonder how many actually got away with it. The real problem would have been they would have been come the enemy of both sides, not good odds.

Hi Dave

I have read reports that the NNC did take off the Red Bandanas towards the end of the battle of Isandlwana.
I will try and find them for you. Idea

hi
i think they would not have actually turned on the british in the way they were trying to kill them, but would have taken off their bandanas to blend in and look for the quickest escape route

quite a good idea wasnt it, the zulus wouldnt realise they were the enemy as there was so many of them

the only downside is if a british soldier shot you as you were escaping!

thanks joe
