|8th January 2005||Pte James Owen in the hopsital at Rorke's Drift|
By Glenn Wade
In James Bancroft's book 'Rorke's Drift' his diagram of the layout and defenders of the hospital lists the name 'Lewis'. I assume he is refering to Pte David Lewis whos real name was James Owen. Does anybody know if there are sources to back this up?

No your assumption is incorrect, he is actually referring to Bombardier 458 Thomas Lewis, N Battery, 5th Brigade, Royal Artillery. A patient in the hospital.

Of course, I should have known. Thanks for your reply.
