Hi Rascal .
I can't give you an official % of Europeans who served in the Colonial forces as Officers and NCO'S but it would be very high .
I've read that many of the NCO's in the Colonial Regiments were foreigners who were enlisted as they couldnt get anyone else to do so .

Hi Giant Marsupial

Thank you anyway ...

Yes, it reminds me of the U.S. Army or the Foreign Legion during the same period in 1879 ...

It seems that there was more in the units of Transvall and they were paid less than the men in the Natal units ? Why??

It is a pity that nobody owns the indications, it would have been interesting ...

There must be a lot of whites born in South Africa in the Natal units ...

And perhaps, than other formed ethnic units ...

Cheers

Hi Rascal .
I seem to remember reading a while back that the majority of the troops with Custer and his 7th Cavalry when it was defeated
at The Little Big Horn on June 25 ? 1876 were either mostly Irish or Italian with some Swedes and British as well , one of his trumpeter's , Martini ( I think that was his name ? ) survived , as he was sent by Custer to find Reno from memory , spoke very little english !!  Rolling Eyes

Pascal,

Do have Norris-Newman's book?

If so look at the casualty rolls for Hlobane in Appendix G.

Germans; Frenchmen; a Hollander & a Norwegian - foreign enough for you?

John et Gary

Not I do not know this book but I read somewhere that the Frontier Light Horse and Weatherley's Border Horses incorporated some French because"Loulou", was to see them in a hospital (this was posted on this forum, but where this?) because they were survivors of Hlobane and Kambula ...

I also know that Bromhead was born in Versailles and the two Degacher brothers were Half-French ...
