|10th January 2004||looking for any connections to Edmund O'toole VC at Ulundi|
By victoria house
Does anyone have any or know of any family decentant of Edmund O'toole who won the VC at Ulundi in 1879 Zula War. If so I am too also trying to prove a family connection to myself. Please email me if you know of anything.
I has a search done in South Africa and it said to have found no living relatives.
I know I connect to a Francis Patrick O'toole of the Tyneside Irish regiment. Trying to link the two Otoole's together if possible.
Thankyou for any replies in advance.

I don't know if what just film hype, or what, but when they made 'Zulu Dawn', it was thrown in from somewhere - and I don't have the source - that Peter O'Toole (Lord Chelmsford in the film.) was some how related to Edmund O'Toole.
I'll make some enquiries for you and see what I can find.
