Hi band of Zulus Wink

Please who owns photos or illustrations of the flags of infantry companies of the NNC in January 1879 ?

"Esprit de corps amongst companies was encouraged and many ,particulary in the 3rd NNC ,carried small flags with the battalion number and simple emblems illustrating the nicknames they had chosen,e.g.pigs,young bulls,lions,ect..."

But also

" To facilitate the movements small flags were introduced for each company.The number of the battalion was painted on each,as well as some device.When possible the latter was an image of whateverthe company was named after. A pig , a young bull , and the like . The men were quite pleased with these flags.They were also the source of amusement and many jokes."

Salute

Pascal

Hi 90th,
The reference is at the top of page 10 in Osprey's Zulu War-Volunteers, Irregulars and Auxiliaries. However there are no photo's or illustrations.
I have read somewhere recently about another unit having a strange embroided lions head and a motto I think in latin on a pennant/flag but for the life of me I can't remember which book I was browsing at the time.

Pascal,
You may have to contact the South African Military History Society to see if they can shed any light on your request. If they cannot but have a descriptive text then you will have to use your artistic license.

cheers

Hi Pascal
This is from the Durnford papers recovered from Isandlwana

Each of the 4 parties should be provided with a lantern and flags ao that when they have to fall
back to the outpost they may not be fired on by their own side.



Cheers

Pascal,

Your fellow Frenchman, Adolphe Yvon, included a N.N.C. flag in his panorama of the Battle of Ulundi, which is displayed at the National Army Museum, Chelsea. The painting is reproduced in colour in Peter C. Smith's "Victoria's Victories."

The one he has illustrated, based on eyewitness accounts, looks something like a Confedrate flag of the American Civil War. It is red with a white saltire cross with what appears to be black saltire cross overlaid over that.

I hope that's a start for you?

Hi the natives

In my opinion, their flags in Ulundi are different than they had at Isandhlwana ...
