Does anybody know of any photographs or sketches of James Rorke? if his particular topic has been raised before I apologise.

Dear Adrian,
I cannot recall seeing an image of James Rorke - of course he died on 24th October 1875.
I might suggest that instead of making single requests that both of the AZW Society have extensive archives - you might find easier to make a list of your requirements and approach them direct - I am sure they would be pleased to help you.

There's a photograph of James Rorke in Ian Knight's 'Nothing Remains But to Fight' published by Greenhill Books. The source of the image is the Killie Campbell Africana Library.
