A wonderful, informative site capturing the full history surrounding the events at Rorkes Drift. It;s wonderful to learn that the family name and event is carried forward for future generations to learn about.

Well Done!

Excellent site, the work that has gone into creating it is by far the best I've seen yet and honors those it is devoted to. Well done!

An excellent site. Have been an avid student of the Anglo-Zulu war for years. A tremendous font of information, and ease in navigation.

I sent the words to "Men of Harlech" and they are now on the website. I got them from the Royal Regiment of Wales museum. But, after listening to the 120th anniversary recording by the RRW, it sounds like the words do not match. I have corrected them and will send them in to the Webmaster for consideration and will also let the RRW museum know.

Exemplary site. Much effort expended towards accuracy and information. Well done.

I've researched extensively on the Zulu War & have drifted through many web sites. This site is by far the best. The Discussion Forum on this site is excellent as many of the contributors definitley know about the Zulu War.
Keep up the good work!

A site I "stumbled over" Full of interest to me
Rorkes drift is without doubt the most famous "battle" in Victorian military history and this site goes a long way in educating people as to the truth which is a bit different to the film Zulu (my favourite film of all time) Many thanks.

Great site, well done. I have learnt much more today than I would have thought possible. What heroes they ALL were, even those without the medals to prove it.

Charles, "Jerry"
Colour Sergeant Bourne did receive the Distinguished Conduct Medal for his actions at Rorke's Drift. It has been suggested that he refused the VC in order to eventually obtain promotion. He initially was unable to afford the necessary costs of becoming an officer. He eventually achieved the rank of Lt. Colonel. We were pleased to attend the unveiling of a plaque on his last home in London. Before the ceremony, we visited his grave in Beckenham.

I highly recommend a book entitled- "The Washing of the Spears" for solid Zulu-British wars history. PBS just did a special presentation re Isandhlwana- on "Secrets of the Dead" and what were the precise causes-aside from sheer numbers-of the British defeat there. It will, I'm sure, air again- and I urge all to watch it carefully. There was, of course, rampant heroism that day for certain.

I love to hear more about the courage of the men at Rorkesdrift...what happened to the "Colors" Sergeant Major named Bourne or Borne...why didn't he receive an ward or was he just overlooked?

Rorkes Drift with my son in the
not too distant future. What a
thrill it will be to pay tribute
to these brave "Men of Harlech"

VERY INFORMATIVE SITE. THE MOTION PICTURE "ZULU" IS VERY WELL MADE, BUT IT'S GOOD TO SEE THE REAL STORY OF RORKES DRIFT. IT IS VRY MUCH THE EQUIVILENT OF THE AMERICAN STORY OF "THE ALAMO" IN TEXAS.
