And who, pray tell, might "Captain" Henry Hook VC be?
Methinks many military historians would be most interested to learn!

Sarah, Alfred Henry Hook was a private at Rorke's Drift - the rank must have been expanded in the family telling!

Sarah, did you live in Cwmbran and do you know the Cameron family?
