Bonsoir

In this battle the native cavalry was represented by the Jantje's Horse,still in reserve at Fort Cherry/Kranskop area,rode south to join the Eshowe relief column assembling
on the lower Thukela.Captain Ayliff returned to Ixopo to recruit more men for the unit,and by early March they mustered 68, with command passing to Capt C;Hay,formally of the 1/1st Regiment NNC.

Anew unit joigned the Jantje's Horse,at the end of February the amaFunzi clan received notification to provide men for another troop of mounted native...

Responding quickly,the Mafunzi Corps or Horse mustered at Piertermaritzburg 73 strong and marched for Stanger in early March.Nginisa,the clan chief's brother,led the unit under the command of Captain Maclean,formerly of the 2nd NNC.Later command of the unit passed to Captain C.Nourse,who had earlier served with 1st NNC.Both units fought at Ginindlovu on 2 Avril but if equiped similitary to other Native Contingent mounted troops with the same uniform and armed with Martini-Henry rifles an Snider carbines,but each man possed a field sign - a white cloth with a cloured spot- on the left arm.

The 5 Mounted Troops of the Natal Native Contingent had this field sign at Isandhlwana ? Question

And what color was the colored spot on the white cloth ? Question

Cheers

Hi Dave

Yes, it must be this, but the only photo I saw the shape of the pattern is not clearly visible simply because ... A round red ...?
