I Joined the Royal Engineers in 1977 and within the first few hours we were watching Zulu.The Corps is very proud of Chard and all the men he commanded,i;m not sure but i think it was the first and maybe only V.C.awarded to an Engineer." He only went to build a bridge"Fantastic Site!!!

Congratulations on a phenomenal site. As a visitor of both Isandhlwana and Rorke's Drift a few years ago viewing your effort brought back the powerful sensations the battles sites impressed on me. Thanks

Love the film and all the history, I have enjoyed what I have read so far, very interesting facts and pictures, "always wondered what Hookie really looked like"!
Great Site.

I am currently undertaking an a-level project about the British defeat at Isandlwana, and debating whether this should be considered a zulu victory or a British defeat. If anyone could provide information regarding the battle, or names of prominent historians i.e Ian Knight i would be extremely gratefull. Thanks!

I like the movie Zulu and I like the movie Zulu Dawn and I like this site and I like reading books about the Zulu wars and I like going to museums that have things about the Zulu War and I like all the heroes who fought in the Zulu war.

This is the first visit I have made to this site and Im impressed. I am hoping to draw and paint a number of scenes from the Rorkes Drift battle and was wondering what scenes the general public who have an interest in the battle would like to see being portrayed most.

Is it possible to purchase a CD of the singing of 'Men of Harlech' recorded in the church at Rorkes Drift as described ? Great site I've always loved the story & the film.Watched it& the video many many times I can understand the sentiment expressed by Joe Moldovan I have felt the same many times; I still say some days 'it could be worse we could be at Yorkes Drift' they don't understand. Kindest Regards Denis

Tears are flowing as I write this. Thank you for bringing some truly brave men to life for me. The real story of the battle has inspired me during the many difficulties I have encountered in my life.

The movie was used as a training film in my army unit and I have watched it many, many times over the years. It is a stiring and memorable movie which conveys the essence of the real history of the day.

As an aside: The technical quality of your site is superb. Many others could learn from you on how to do it right.

Thank you again.

ive enjoyed your web page and found the information i needed, regarding mr wassel who was the first person to receive a vc in my home town of Barrow in Furness. i knew his son very well as he had a public house in this town for years, he has sadly past away now.

he told me alot about his father and rorkes drift, although being a young lad never reall understood what a vc was untill i went to south africa to live and heard so much about the battle i will now with the information ive recieved from your web site write an article to our local paper about this very brave man keep up the good work i shall be returning to it more often

As a member of HM Forces, i am very interested in and very proud of our military history, in particular the heroics of every soldier and warrior at Rorkes Drift. I, like many others have watched the film countless times. I'd like to say that this site is one of the most interesting sites i have ever visited, a site i will recommend to everyone. Keep up the good work everyone. Thankyou for allowing me to tie in so many images of the film to the reality and the memories of all who perished and survived.

First saw the movie when I was five (sat through two showings) and have seen it numerous times since. Bought the DVD yesterday with very interesting commentary. This is a great site, well done.
