Having spent 22 years in the Marine Corps I am well aware
of the "Hollywood image" of bravery in battle.
While I am sure of the Hollywood story lines and characert
it can not deminish the bravery of the Rorkes Drift
Adm Halsey said that "there are no great men, only
great times to which ordinary men arise". Well done
to your web site.

Excellent Site, both my Son and I have visited both Rorkes Drift and Isandlwana in February for the last 3 years, and have completed twice the route from the battlefield down to Fugatives Drift and each time just managing to wade across the Buffalo River with its strong currents, all the time thinking of those brave soldiers who had managed to get that far, only to be killed or drowned. It was always a relief to get back to David Charles's Lodge. Hopefully we will be visiting again in Feburary 2002. Thankyou for bringing this historic epic to the Web.

Loved the movie "Zulu". The real Bromhead even looks a little bit like Michael Caine

Just finished viewing the "film/movie" Zulu and decided to see what was on the Internet. This is a fantastic site! I wish there was something on Capt. Spalding who left just before the battle. I have added your site to my bookmarks. I also enjoyed reading the history of battle at http://rapidttp.com/milhist/vol44gc.html for those who want a detailed history of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift.

To Alan and Peter, what a pleasure it is to return to your site. Something new to inform one on each visit. May both your quest for information and the development of this truly tremendous site continue.

To Vivian, of the Spruce Grove any excuse will do club.
Thank you Vivian for your comments on the site. I don't see why you should restrict your raising of a wee glass to friday afternoons. Like me, it sounds like any excuse for a booze up. What about Balaclava on Mondays, Waterloo on Tuesdays, Quebec on Wednesdays, Chilianwala on Thursdays, Friday of course the Zulu war, then you can sober up at the weekend.

We of the Spruce Grove, Alberta chapter of the "Colour Sergeant Bourne Club" raise a wee glass in the memory of the "good gentlemen" of 'B' Company every Friday afternoon at the local Canadian Legion. Thank you for this fine site. It allows me to gather new knowledge of the engagement and savour history.

Excellent site.The typical trio of British military conflict- Isandlwana -unexpected defeat, plucky victory - Rorkes Drift- overwhelming victory Uludi-. See also Dunkirk, Battle of Britain and D-DAY.

Great site. I have always been an avid follower of the story of Rokes Drift and the Zulu war. Thanks for such an interesting page.

As Gonville Bromhead's great nephew, I am both pleased with this site and its account of his actions. Many thanks to those concerned.

I have always had an interest in this campaign and finding this site is an added bonus. My descendants originate from St Helena where the cheifs brother was held for a while and have found this site to be more than helpful in finding out more about the men that participated in this conflict.
Keep up the good work

I was fortunate enough to have been educated not far from the scene of this great battle. The bravery of all those men under almost insurmountable odds beggars belief. I urge all that have not been to the scene to visit it and just imagine what it must have been like!
This is what will, and has, contributed to making South Africa what it is to-day!
