The Matbele people are a branch of Zulus who split for King Shaka in the early 1820s under the leadership of Mzilikazi, a former general in Shaka's army.

Hi Littlehand,
The only thing i can tell you is that it is probably showing the Shangani Patrol where 34 pioneer police officers, under the command of Major Allan Wilson, were cut off and killed by 3,000 warriors. I believe there was a film of the same name telling the story.

Wilson did sport a fairly substantial moustache so it could be - as far as I remember there were no survivors of Wilson's patrol so no first hand accounts as to how events unfolded, but I have always imagined that with 3000 versus 30 odd there would not have been much opportunity for the men of Wilsons patrol to fight a running battle as seems depicted in the picture - more of a last stand having been surrounded.

Hi All,
I have seen this picture in the past, and a name came to me,Crewe, looking on the internet i think the illustration is something to do with the VC action of trooper Frank William Baxter, with Lt Fred Crewe involved, this action took place on 22nd April 1896. It has nothing to do with Alan Wilson and the Shangani Patrol.
