|19th December 2003||Poem re Rorke's Drift|
By John Lewis
In these pages, dated 11.3.03, Peter Quantrill when discussing Adendorff's presence or non-presence, at Rorke's Drift, quotes the following lines:
"And e'en in the homes of mourning,
Where death has stricken hard,
They talk of Gonville Bromhead,
And Adendorff and Chard."
Does anyone know where I might view the whole poem ?

Thanks for the reply. Pardon my ignorance but what is the, 'Red Book' ?
|20th December 2003||l.j.knight|
the red book is a compilation of contempory newspaper accounts covering the A.Z.W.from the colonial perspective, and untill recently available in reprinted form on this sites shop. but it is still readily available, but there ar others who can give you a more detailed answer if only they would put down the mince pies or whatever it is that is more important then answering this question. hope u find what your looking for John. regards.
