I have read the other post where this writer says she is a 7 yrs old girl. Like other people I have my doubts as to this assertion.
However, Chard was buried in the graveyard of a country church in Somerset - where his brother was rector.
Full details can be found by clicking on to his name at the left of this page.
May I ask the webmaster if he is going to continue to allow "Jacky Chard" to continue to post these queries?

I think the clue lies within the email address
C(Hardly) at HO(mail).
Anyway Jacky if you wish to learn more may I suggest the Zulu day at Bristol (7 September) would be a great start.

My apologies, should have thought you may not be from the UK.
I'm not a expert in this field, I'm a general Victoria Cross researcher but the Zulu wars interest me most of all.
The Rectory where John Chard VC spent his last days in Hatch Beauchamp was when I last visited a Bed and Breakfast 'Close House'. Having spent a couple of nights there the owner informed me that he had for sale a booklet of roughly 30 pages all about John Chard's life, it was an interesting read and on my next visit I will purchase you a copy.
