DB14, it'd be hard to put a number on how many N.N.C. died, but I'd reckon about two-thirds, the rest dispersing all over the country and into Natal. It is unfortunate that the N.N.C. were considered cowardly, as I think many of them would have put up a good fight, if anything, because they had to, as it was a matter of life or death - kill or be killed. It was Hamilton-Browne who appeared to find the isiquizi(?) in the N.N.C. the most dependable and bravest, but someone might correct me on this.

Hi DB14.
According to England's Sons by Julian Whybra he has the figure at 469 and another 471 '' Fate Unknown '' . One thing for certain
we will never have a exact number as the records regarding the NNC are vague at best I would think . Julian may be able to give you
some more info .
cheers 90th. Idea
