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.
