I was interested in finding out more about Rorke's drift but I never imagined I would find such a marvelous website. Great work. I saw Zulu when I was 12 in '64 but it seems like yesterday.

I visited Rorkes Drift and at the graveyard came face to face with my namesake Pvt Farr J on the memorial. Can't stop wondering about it and whether he was related, as my family came from the welsh border regions. As I amm trying to compile a family tree, does anybody have any information of this individual, or any other 'Farrs' in the 24th regiment at the time??

Having passed Rorkes Drift on foot whilst serving Her Majesty in the sixties I found the web site fascinating with the truth rather than the myth. Well done!

As a Child in the 1950's I "inherited' a brown and white Zulu shield from my grandfather, who was named James Dunbar (I still have it) I was told that it had been brought back from the zulu war by one of grandad's family he was named after. I was told that there were also three assegai's but these had been handed in to the police (as a child safety precaution ) between the wars. I was also told that a cousin of mine was given a certificate, or some sort of document regarding marksmanship. This would have been in the late 50's early 60's and before the film was made. It leaves me wondering if we may be connected to Pte 1421Dunbar. The shield is about 3 feet in height and approx 2 feet across at the widest point it does have a 4in scar on the front where the hair has been taken off, clearly by a pointed instrument.
Spooky, but Pte Dunbar's ' last four' were 14-21, I was Fus (Pte) 15-22. This is a fantastic site and I shall now endevour to trace a relationship. Regards. N Dunbar.

I have a store called The Dragoon located in Cookstown Ont Canada, in it I sell toy soldiers and military prints, books etc. One of the things the most interest is shown in is the Zulu Wars. To this end I refer your web page to client's. Your site is by far one of the most tasteful ones dedicated to this part of history. Keep up the good work, and the memory of the brave soldiers on both sides will be remembered.
NEVER FORGET
