Did the Zulu's have more fear of mounted regiments than infantry regiments, or was it all the same to them. I wound be very interested in accounts from Zulus and their opinions regarding attacks by mounted divisions. Especially relating to Ulundi 17th Lancers.

Dave. I have not come across any accounts regarding Zulu's being afraid of mounted units. If you want to know what their greatest fear was.

"It was the good old British Bayonet"
