I am a big fan of the movie and was just introduced to the web site while working in Luanda, Angola. This is an excellent source of information...keep up the good work.

I live in Chard Rd which is where the family had a house. I am interested in his time in Plymouth as not too much seems to be known .

This is a excellent web site dedicated to probably the best known battle of the british empire, Rorkes Drift, i never tire of watching the film and never will, in fact i think i can go through the film word for word!!,

I note reference to the film Zulu Dawn. I haven't seen it, but an intelligent workmate suggests that it is pure Hollywood, Burt Lancaster indeed. I wonder too if Col Sgt Bourne was as portrayed in the film Zulu, I hope so, but I shall endeavour to find out.

Damn fabulous site!!! After hearing all the stories and seeing the films, this site is an absolute must! I am also glad that the defenders are still remembered in ceremonies after so many years.

Messages for Martin Heyes. Thanks for your e mail. My remark about Col Sgt Bourne was meant to be lighthearted.To me he was the epitome of a man of his rank, quietly organising the heroics without fuss or bother. As an ex serviceman I met a few of this type during my time. I appreciate he didn't actually do anything exceptional, apart from backing up Chard and Bromhead

Yet another fascinating look into British history and a very well put together web site.

as a past veteran of the vietnam war i have always looked at these men as men of courage. it was a training film for us at recruit training. the message i realized later was to stand your ground under overwelming odds and my unit did just that in vietnam but salute these brave men LEST WE FORGET

A great site dedicated to a very famous action. Brave men, the lot of 'em. To me anyone who fights in a war is a hero - it's the "extra" that makes these men so special. I'm currently working on getting a plaque installed to a WW1 VC (Daniel Burges), so I am aware of what info is needed, and mine is one man! Keep up the great work.

A wonderful, informative site! I particularly appreciate the fact that the C. O. was an engineer, long before the engineering profession acquired the "nerdy" image it maintains in our day. Bravo for exceptional courage under fire, perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds, and the tenacious character demonstrated by the Celt and Anglo-Saxon soldiers who defended Rorke's Drift.

As far as I know, a descendant of Fred Hitch was the Regimental Sergeant Major at the All Arms Junior Leaders Regiment at Tonfanau in Wales, during the early 1960s. Any relation to Nick Fields mates wife, I wonder? I am a great fan of the film, have been for years. How come Col Sgt Bourne didn't get a VC?

Well done site and memorial to the action at Rorke's Drift. Visitors amy want to look for "Narrative of Field Operations Connected with the Zulu War of 1879". It was published by what was then the War Dapartment in 1881 and stands as an official history of the actions immediately before and after Rorke's Drift.

A totally inspiring account of men whose loyalty to the Crown proved an insurmountable obstacle to savagery!
