Richard,

It might be prudent if the author of the accompanying text paid a visit to the Museum. Just my opinion as there a couple of howlers contained in this paragraph alone:

The tiny British garrison of 139 held out all night against thousands of Zulu warriors, “saving” Natal from a Zulu invasion. They were mostly comprised of members of the 24th of Foot, The South Wales Borderers, who had set out to South Africa from their Headquarters in Brecon.

You'd imagine that the author would check with Rob Caskie before using the text.

Martin,
I'm afraid it's a sign of the times, not considering things like that to be important.
How many variations do we see on basics such as 'Rorke's'?

At least they didn't say 'winning a VC' eh Martin?
