Apologies if this question has been dealt with before but try as I might I have been unable to find any previous discussion!
It concerns the Sikali Horse.
In the Film 'Zulu dawn' as the Sikali horse are crossing the Buffalo (Mzinyathi) River by Rorkes Drift, they appear to have long saddle slung 'holsters' holding what looks like throwing spears. I have since seen depictions of them with shoulder slung 'back quivers' which also appear to hold spears and knobkerries.
Can anyone comment on the authenticity of these?
