As the Gt Gt Grandson of 593 William Jones V.C. it is nice to see so much detail and time spent to the dedication and memory of that small but formidable band of men "The 24th".
Keep up the good work!.
They would have been proud.

And once again many thanks.

A truely superb site. I have been studying the Cy Enfield movie 'Zulu' in my Film Studies class and researching the events depicted in the film has sparked a new interest for me. I think that this a perfect site to honour not only the VC winners but all the men who fought at Rorke's Drift and Isandhlwana. Thank you once again.

As a young boy, when the film Zulu was first released in the cinema,it has always captured my imagination,you have constructed a well informed & detailed site.Both my son(a recent convert,which is quite an achivement considering Sony Playstation is available to him) & I, one day hope to visit the Rourke's Drift site.

I am a member of a very small independent living history group here Texas. Naturally we our impression is that of the 24th.

You have a grand site and I have already forwarded it to everyone I think might enjoy it.

to all visitors to the site,

thank you for yor comments on the site.

I can't respond to individuals since I am in South Africa and email is very sporadic.

Have visited Isandlwana, Rorke's drift, Eshowe, Gingindlovu. Met with David Rattray on two occasions and hope to tell what else I'm doing.

Been reading everything I can about this incident.But just stumbled onto this page by accident. It's great! I feel like I know these guys now!
My next trip to the U.K. will find me visiting Chard's grave site. He's my idea of a real hero.

I thought I knew everything there was to know about the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. This wonderful site taught me that I am not as smart as I thought I was. Thanks for this great effort. I will return frquently.

What a great site!
I have been fascinated with
Rorke's Drift since I saw
ZULU in the movies as a kid.
Now my son, Nolan and I always
watch it on video.

Twenty two years ago I had the honour to visit Brecon museum, my great grat grtandfather was one of the 36 survivours of rorkesdrift, he was a youn boy at the time, Evan Jones, I am from Welshpool , Powys.but live in Mexico with my husband and two daughters, I have tried to find more information about my late grandfather as I would like to pass on all the information to my children, I know it was a battle of great courage and proud that Evan Jones was there.....he was I believe the young bugalar boy and I am not sure of his number, I think it was 1428 or 1248... sadly his medals and log book were sold by an uncle, but maybe now with this wonderful web site I may be able to pass down the history of rorkesdrift to my children... thankyou..

One of the best sites I have visited.It is a pity that this info is not at the museum at Rorkes Drift.

I had been led to belive that I was a decendant of the late John Chard, I now no that he had no children,so this can not be the case, but am still proud to bare the same name.
