I'm sure many of you can imagine how delighted I am to have, after many years of searching, located the burial place of this Defender of Rorke's Drift, my great, great uncle.

Sadly, his last years were spent in the Walton Workhouse, Liverpool and he is buried in a common grave in Walton Park Cemetery. I've always hoped that his grave could be marked in some way and he could be publically recognised as a Defender, but it seems that this is not to be.

We have corresponded away from here but a very warm welcome to RDVC on the eve of the anniversary of the defence. While his grave may be forgotten his deeds and those of his comrades live on.
