The Defense of Rorkes Drift will never be forgotten as long as great sites like this keep the memory alive, Well done long may you keep the spirit alive.

Some people say the internet is full of usless tosch, but this site proves that it can be interesting, stimulating and factual. Wonderful site thanks to Chard's map as it helps to show really what happened. Can't wait for the redesign!!!

I have been a fan of the film for sometime but have only just found this sight. Its great & a superb monument to the brave men that fought in the battle.
Thank you.

Fantastic site. But lets not forget those natives that died too. They died as heros too, and not just the British. I hope that the graves of the Zulu has a gravestone too, as mentioned by Hook in his report. The stiff upper lip and sheer courage of the Victorian soldier did indeed prove effective against overwhelming odds. Salute to the soldiers past and present.

Although born in Dublin, LT. Coghill's family come from Castletownshend in West Cork, which is about 50 miles SW of Cork city, in the Republic of Ireland. There is a memorial to Lt. Coghill in St. Barrahane's, the local C of I (Anglican) church in the village.

I am doing some research into the Adendorff family. In particular does anyone know of a connection between Lt James Adendorff of Rorkes Drift fame and Trooper HJC Adendorff of the Umvoti mounted rifles who took part in the Natal 1906 campaign to suppress the poll tax riots.

My great grandfather was Private Samuel Wassall, he won his VC at Isandhlwana. As a child I had a copy of The Victor which told his story, sadley I no longer have this. Many great stories emerge from this period of history and I am proud to be connected to it.

i just purchased the "Zulu Dawn" movie, i have had it for only 3 weeks and i have watched it at least 8 times, great film......

I have just returned from a lengthy visit to S.Africa and was lucky enough to visit both Isandhlwana, Rorkes Drift and Fugitives Drift with an excellent guide (unfortionatly not David Rattray !). I was utterly taken a back by the incredible stories of valour, both from the British troops and the Zulu impi. The battlefields themselves have an awesome effect on the visitor and will stay with me for ever. An excellent site. I'm sure I'll be a regular visitor.

Great Site, and of great interest to me, as I was attached to the South Wales Borderers at the barracks in Brecon, as Armourer(REME)in 1953/54. A great regiment and I am proud and honored to have served with them. I visit the Barracks and Museum whenever I am in Wales which is about every 3 years, as I now live in Canada.....Alan Webb
