1st July 2004Rorkes Drift wagons
By Melvin Hunt
Just watched "Black As Hell Thick As Grass" again, not having seen it for a few years, and it has reminded me that at the time Kenneth made the programme (1979) there were two wagons actually positioned on the defence perimeter of RD supposedly where the original wagons were in the actual battle.
Does anyone know of the history of the 1979 wagons and what happened to them?
