A new gravestone will be dedicated to a Rorke's Drift defender 1409 Pte David Lloyd 2/24th.

This will take place at 10.00 on Saturday 29 September at Aberdare cemetery, CF44 9AF, Hirwaun Road
on the B4275. Phone: 01685 885345 Grave Y14 - 3. All are invited for the occasion.

It is a new headstone which the local branch of the Royal Welsh Veterans' Association have managed to arrange.

Rorke's Drift defender David Lloyd was born at Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil (1858 ?). Attested at Brecon 1877, Discharged1889.

Unfortunately I can't work out which entrance or where to park. I'll try to find out.
