Largely being used as support for the Main British forces in South Africa they became the main defense force against the Zulu forces. Recruited from the local populace, mainly from the Basuto and Mponso tribes, this force excelled in dealing with Zulu due to an extensive history of fighting them.
Given mainly menial labouring jobs they eventually saw action on the front with varying results, some fighting hard and to the last man alongside their British comrades, whilst others they broke alongside the NCO's. In either case, even if they fight today or tomorrow, they will certainly fight to the last.
Providing support for the British army these loyal chaps are just the job whether you're looking to refight Isandlwana, Ulundi, or the other battles during 1879.
