Any ideas where I can get a list of the NCO's in Major Marter's squadron that captured King Cetshwayo in the Ngome Forest?

Hi Sergio. Welcome to the forum. Here are the officers, I'll starting looking for the NCOs I think there were some men from Lonsdale horse as well.

28th August " Chetewayo the Zulu King Captured by a Detachment of the King’s Dragoon Guards under Major Marter with Captains Gibbings, Godson, Lieuts. Alexander and Burney at 4.30 p.m. in the Ngome Forest and brought into Ulundi on the 1st Sept."

Hi SergioD.
I can give you the following from '' They Fell Like Stones '' by John Young ; Major R.J.C Marter of the 1st KDG'S set out with
a force comprising a Squadron of his regiment , a company of the NNC , Lonsdales's Horse and ten Mtd Infantrymen . This force departed on the 27th August .
cheers 90th . Salute

Thanks Littlehand/90th

the KDG website would suggest that Marter was in command of D & H troops on the 2nd June when they discovered the body of the Prince Imperial.

from what I can see as far as capturing the King is concerned Troops C and F (part of Colonel Baker Russel's Flying column) can be discounted. Troop A (permenant escort to Sir Garnet Wolseley) did escort the two guns of N/5 Royal Artillery lost at Isandlwana into Ulundi on the 14th August joining D (?), E and H. I assume the squadron that captured the King was made up of these troops. The curator of the KDG museum was unable to help me on this.

Littlehand I hope this information helps .

Cheers

Sergio
