CTSG,

It is Jantze's Native Horse.  The engraving is based on a sketch by Charles Fripp, who depicted himself in the sketch.

What you have to realise the person who has coloured the black & white engraving hasn't got a clue about the Zulu War, hence the blue rather than red pugaree.

There is a photograph that appears in Laband & Knight's The War Correspondents of the Anglo-Zulu War, published 1996, which shows a Native Horse unit clearly wearing white armbands.
