Hi Pascal .
He probably had a sword but no- body will or would know for certain what Pulleine had on his person
on that day !. In regard to your other posts that havent been answered , all that info is already on the forum ,

Cheers 90th .

Hi Gary

Pulleine body was found by the British, right ?

So his sword can be recovered by the British ...

Or his sword can be recovered by the Zulus ...

Cheers

If it is left to face the Zulu, he inevitably took his sword....

There's a photo of Pulleine in Jackson's book, he's stood with his wife
and he's wearing a sword.
