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

Gents, I'm having another senior moment...please can someone remind me what the 'popular' translation is for the cry made by a Zulu as he plunges his iklwa into the body of an enemy?

And, other than "Usuthu!", are there any other appropriate war cries or chants I should be aware of?

Yes, planning another toy soldier game set during the AZW, so no great historical accuracy required, but I do like a degree of realism!

Xhosa, many thanks - That's the translation, but not how I've seen it written before - more like "ishii!" or "nGadla!" maybe?

And, more important, where did you get that great avatar image? I've definitely got a use for that if its available!

Hiya Simon, yes your right, i responded ( usually to
my detriment  Very Happy ) off the cuff, its from the mouth
of the wonderful David Rattray, from his TDOTDM.
so like i said i made the spelling up but that's as 
close as i could spell to convey the sound, if that
makes sense..

The image is from a book, which offhand i cannot for
the life of me remember, but i know i have the full
resolution scanned and will let you have it soonest,
as remarked on another thread earlier, its good to
share,                                     cheers Les

That's great, much appreciated - perfect for the reverse side of a set of gaming cards I need to make :-)
