This picture by courtesy of Michael Glover's "Rorkes Drift, a Victoria Epic" , shows a squad of NNC at drill early on a summer morning.
It is interesting to note the total absence of western garb/uniform and very scant traditional garb. Each man has a rifle and a bandolier.
No boots are worn.

The back row of troopers, the younsters in the squad, are apparently traditionally armed with shields etc.
The bearded white instructor may be recognisable to some.

I've got an original photograph of the group, it has been captioned "N.N.C., Coastal Column."

You can see a bit more of the group.

Hi all .
Could this be part of the Relief Column that Lord C commanded to relieve Eshowe , John Dunn was certainly with them !.
I'm not sure on Dunn's role at the start of the war , but I do think the ' Good Lord ' had already forcibly recruited J.D if you
know what I mean !. Basically , join us , or things wont go good for you post war .
cheers 90th. Salute

Hi all

If this is John Dunn on the photo, the soldiers are his scouts.After much and bad consideration,he abandonned Zululand and crossed in Natal en Decembre 1878.After he raised a force of 150 retainers and, under a commandant named Moorethese took part in the Eshowe relief expedition in March;armed with Enfield percussion muskets,shields and spears,as in the picture,they fought at Gingindlovu.

Cheers

Pascal
