The History Bunker has added - Natal Carbineer Officer, trooper and bugler; Newcastle Mounted Rifles and Buffalo Border Guard to their stock. Not sure of any plans about Natal Mounted Police yet, but I keep checking

As an update, it appears that this company has now designed a Natal Mounted Police officer’s jacket, which now means they’ve got the uniforms, or at least parts of them, of the four Colonial Units at Isandhlwana.

It gets so much closer to the idea of an independent Isandhlwana Colonials Re-enactment Group, solely devoted to them, for AZW Events.

It is my hope, this company, who seem to be aware of all the units present, may eventually make available the full RE uniform of the senior officer who commanded them at the end.

Not sure if it’d be the first personality reenactor at the events, but it’d be great to have him appear at these public occasions along with the volunteers.
