Myself being very interested in British colonial wars, have never understood why Colour Sergeant Bourne ,was never awarded the Victoria Cross for Gallantry for his actions at Rorke's Drift.

as a big fan of the film i decided to log on and explore some of the heroes of the battle a little deeper. Some of the facts i found were very intweresting and made for pleasent reading.

As my daughter is now visiting Natal while studying wildlife ecology at Texas A&M University, I am following her travels on a daily basis via the internet. I remembered the movie which I had first seen as a teenager. The movie and story made a huge impression on me. At the time I likened the story to the heroic defenders of Texas' most hallowed shrine, the Alamo. I have just today bought a VHS of Zulu to present to my daughter upon her return home.

Just a thought-an old thought....Does anyone remember seeing the re release of 'ZULU' in about 1972 at the Casino Cinerama in old compton Street London?? That did the film justice...(a very wide 70mm slightly curved screen)....Why don't they re lease the film again to a new generation of film fans????
Nice thoughts, nice times back then, and the movie ran for at least eight weeks!!! It would be great to see this movie back on the cinema circuit again. Even more re-release movie posters of the film to collect then!!!

Could someone please let me know the exact village that Corporal Allen was born in near Berwick-Upon Tweed.

If you are thinking of visiting the battlefields of Zululand I recommend the superb Babanango Valley Lodge, Babanango. Host John Turner is qualified and excellent guide.

In reply to Steve Hook I suggest, when looking up your family tree, you start with yourself and work backwards. As a great great granddaughter of the man all the information we have about him shows that his only grandson with the surname Hook died childless.

Only recently found this website very interesting,about five years ago I decided to research my family history obviously as Henry Hook is the most famous Hook I know of I decided to start with him,the first thing that struck me upon looking at his photograph is the remarkable likeness to myself ,in fact the lirarian whooshowed me the book and saw is picture actually commemted on it.I originally wrote to a Family History Society in Gloucetershire and they told me that they had no knowledge of Henry Hook living in London where my family originated from,your wesite has told me different he lived in Sydenham SE my family come from SE London making me think even more there is a strong family connection!If there is anyone elsewho can throw any light on the matter plase "e" mailme at [email protected]

This is a great website. The movie "Zulu" is the greatest war film ever created. I have it on DVD.

Hi Peter,

Thanks, Gary

I have a book, copyrighted 1911, written by a Horace Smith, who I believe to be General Sir Horace Lockwood Smith-Dorrien, called "The War Maker". I can't seem to find out anything about this book, including worth or background. Can you help?

I have been informed by Richard Roynon,Treasurer of The Gunner Evans Memorial Fund of the donation made by Mr Alan Critchley.I wish to thank him on behalf of the family for his most generous donation to the fund for the restoration of the memorial to a defender of Rorke's Drift and Varteg cemetery which was recently vandalised.
