The iNdluyengwe were formed in 1866. In 1879 this bachelor regiment with an average age of thirty years, was identified by black shields with a large white spot, and their headdress which included sakabuli feathers over the ears, and black and white ostrich feathers.

Two figures in this set carry battle axes, the others are armed with Martini-Henry rifles taken from fugitives escaping the battle of Isandhlwana.

The regiment, one thousand strong, led the Zulu attack on Rorke’s Drift.
