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

I came across this image of a Zulu Battle, but I’m not sure which one. There is no text what so ever. If I had to guest I would say Ulundi. But it was the Lancers that left the British Square to attack the Zulu’s. The British soldiers in the image are using sabres.
But I would still say Ulundi?

I believe that is a small section of the painting of the Battle of Ulundi.

hi all.
The well known historian is correct , this picture is on page 114 of " THE ZULU WAR THEN AND NOW " by
IAN KNIGHT, the caption reads...... This dramatic engraving appeared in the extra supplement to the ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS,
dated 24th may, and was entitled " THE FINAL REPULSE OF THE ZULUS AT GINGHILOVO. Based on sketches supplied by
CHELMSFORD"S military secretary, LT-COL J.N.CREALOCK , it depicts the mtd infantry under CAPT ( LATER MAJOR) BARROW
driving the zulu from the field - a rout which became a bloody execution as the exhausted zulus were cut down by fresh eager
horseman committed to avenging the disaster at ISANDLWANA.
This book has many photos and is well worth having i think i saw it for 9.99 on ebay uk, i paid a lot more !!!!.

If im not mistaken i think barrow was killed at TEL-EL KABIR
i think i spelt it right, happily open to correction.
cheers 90th. :lol:

Not a regiment at all, but a unit, No. 2 Squadron, Mounted Infantry, which was made up from men from the 2nd/24th; 88th; 90th & 91st.

Thanks for your replies.

One more question. Was the uniform in the photo designed in order to identify the No. 2 Squadron, Mounted Infantry. Because the regiments that made up this unit had different uniforms in the first place.
