Listen to wilhem guys, maybe they weren't rank and file like the British, but they were still organized.

They were organised into regiments by age.
Each regiment had it's own name and stayed in it's own barracks. Unmarried men made up the main forces while married men were reserves.

After their 20th birthdays, young men would be sorted into formal ibutho (plural amabutho) or regiments. They would build their i=handa (often referred to as a 'homestead', as it was basically a stockaded group of huts surrounding a corral for cattle), their gathering place when summoned for active service. Active service continued until a man married, a privilege only the king bestowed. The amabutho were recruited on the basis of age rather than regional or tribal origin. The reason for this was to enhance the centralised power of the Zulu king at the expense of clan and tribal leaders. They swore loyalty to the king of the Zulu nation.
