Thank you very much for creating such a superb site...the perfect antidote to the poison of the poorly researched "information" sites which just parrot the same baseless accusations that Rorke's Drift was a minor skirmish and that Bromhead and Chard were incompetant.

Congratulations on an excellent web site - thorough, informative and a fitting tribute to a group of brave men who triumphed against overwhelming odds.

I am sure everything has already been said about the heroic explots of the men at Rorkes drift, I wonder if the soldiers of today would show the same bravery?

Good to see a Web site dedicated to this historic engagement. Of course, we were the real bad boys - provoking the Zulu attacks.
However, this in no way distracts from the heroism of the partipants in the battle. Which I admire ghreatly.

I read somewhere that one of the men involved in the battle was from my part of the world, Dudley in the West Midlands. Anyone enlighten me please?

Iam very proud that my great Grandfather Henry Hook has so many admirers. I was brought up by my grand mother Julia Hook his youngest daughter from his first marriage to Comfort hook . She had many stories of her childhood to tell and if you read the book written by Mr. Barry Johnson you will read some of her stories, and see her phots in there. The book is called "Hook of Rorke's Drift" by Barry.C. Johnson.

Excellent site. Wonderful source of information on both Isandhlwana and Rorke's Drift. I appreciate the words to "Men of Harlech" even if they didn't sing it.
I would like more information about Lt. Adendorf.
Keep up the good work.

Very impressive. Very informative. Your site does justice to the bravery of the men who fought in this battle, regardless which side they fought on.

Well done.

This is a remarkable website. My youngest son and I recently watched both Zulu and Zulu Dawn. Charlie hasn't stopped humming John Barry's score since. Back in the 1960s Zulu triggered my deep fascination with South Africa. I wonder if it will do the same for Chuck. I suspect we will return to RDVC with some frequency.

Absolutely brilliant site. So detailed. I've found so much information and pictures on my great,great,great grandfather Pte HENRY HOOK VC and Rorke's Drift. Also the honourable men he served with. Also the other battle sites. Every click of the mouse, brings up more and more. The links to other sites are also excellent. It's getting a very emotional and sobering journey. Thankyou. Don't stop what your doing. Lez Dutton Staffordshire.
