Who, or what connects Staff Sergeant MacChesney and Sergeants F. Mulcahy and T. Quincannon to King Cetshwayo kaMpande?

Leave the chocolate alone and put on those thinking caps!

These three were the brawling Irish sergeants in director John Ford's  "Cavalry Trilogy" of the movies "For Apache," "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon," and "Rio Grande"--all featuring John Wayne.  As to the connection with King Cetshwayo, I can only hazard that in the one movie peace overtures were made to the Indian leader, but in the end the Native American hordes wiped out Cavalry leader Henry Fonda and his men similar to Isandlwana.  Warm?  No chocolate here, JB.
PS Could it be that John Wayne was Cetshwayo's grandson from an illegitimate tryst fathered when the king visited the UK in 1882?  The King didn't bring his wives with him and so must have needed company.

RB,

That's the two Sergeants accounted for Mulcahy was in Fort Apache, and the character of Quincannon appears in both She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and Rio Grande.

You'll have to look for a better man to find the Staff Sergeant, and a different army as well.

Close but no cigar, chocolate or Cuban!

Victor McLaglen. there is a connection to South Africa, but i guess i will
have to wait for the reveal..

one of my favourite actors David Niven.
Niven's grandfather William Degacher was killed in the Battle of Isandlwana (1879), during the Zulu War.. i have just re read bring on the empty horses.brilliant, i will have to get another copy of the
moons a balloon.

Steve,

Well done!

The Christian Herald was ahead of its time though, as the meeting took place in 1882 at 18 Melbury Road, Kensington.

RB & Les,

Staff-Sgt. MacChesney was his character in Gunga Din.

In the circumstances I think I would probably have told the Rev McLaglen what to do with them. Which he probably did in Zulu.
