Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

In the movie Zulu, the South African Constable mentioned as unit made up of women. Does anyone know what they were called in the Zulu language?

Good morning. They were known as iziNtanga and Organised into groups which corresponded to the Regiments. Generally they performed no military function, but were responsible to maintenance of the community & provided wives for older men. They were also required to relieve pressure after a campaign by engaging in ukuHlobonga (safe sex). The Female Regiments established at the time of King Shaka kaSenzangakhona were:

*umVutwamini (Type of fruit)
*inThlabathi (‘Sand’)
*imBazane (‘Self-admirers’)
*uluSiba (‘The Feather’)
*uNgisimane (‘Englishman’)

Nice one old H.

Yes, it does look like nightmare at first glance.

I had visions of units of irate female Zulus, arms folded with a rolling pin in one hand, waiting to say to their men "where have you been all day, and what time do you call this to come home, and just look at the state you are in, and another thing, why do you want that ripped red jacket, just look at it, it's all covered in dried blood, if you think I'm washing and mending that thing, you can think again, now get in the hut and be quick about it" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Martin. Salute
