Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

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"
