|8th February 2004||Total no.of VC winners|
By Ed Coan
Just trying to double-check something - what was the total number of VCs won during the Anglo-Zulu War, including posthumous ones?
Thanks for any help received.

I'll break it down into the actions fought:-
Isandlwana - 3
Rorke's Drift - 11
Ntombe - 1
Hlobane - 4
Khambula - 1
Reconnaissance of 3/7/1879 - 3.
Total of 23 awards of the Victoria Cross.
The Khambula award relates to Lt. E.S. Browne, 1st/24th Regiment, and is normally wrongly stated as an award for his actions at Hlobane.
