Why do all the references from the Rorke's drift engagement appear to show the 2-24 wearing the red uniform when they probably fought the battle in thier blues, making them a harder target to aim at?

this site serves as an excellent modern monument to brave combatants, zulu & british alike.
this has helped my daughter come to understand the true nature of this conflict for her school work

En estos tiempos, en lo que el heroismo y el honor son conceptos pasados de moda, quiero manifestar mi admiración por los héroes de Rorke's Drift, y lamentar que en España no exista quien mantenga viva la memoria de nuestros héroes como los defensores de Baler (Filipinas).

This is such an excellent site.Have been interested in all to do with Rorkes Drift etc since hearing the details from my father,and then seeing the film for the first time 30 years ago about,my two sons are also hooked,to the point of knowing all the script almost from start to finish!!But also being very proud that my father was in the South Wales Borderers during the WW2,and landed with the 2nd battalion at Asnelles on D-day.Thankyou I will certainly be a regular viewing your website.

Still by far the best site on the net regards Zulu information .

Just like to say that I came across your excellent site purely by accident when I was doing a search for the Royal Horse Artillery, of which my grandfather was a member during WWI and partly for research purposes as I'm chronicalling his war diaries and also researching his (and my) family tree. I loved the film Zulu when it first came out and have seen it many times since but I'm also interested in the history of it and have seen serveral documentaries on it on the television and your site is brilliant. Just wanted to say I've enjoyed my 'tour' and am bookmarking it for a future further one when I get time. Thanks. Nick.

I saw the movie ZULU when I was 23 in 1964. I still view it on occasion via VCR tape. There is a book worth reading if it can be found, THE ZULU WAR by DAVID CLAMMER (1973) under the heading of BATTLE STANDARDS MILITARY PAPER BACKS. DAVID C DELEE, CALIFORNIA U.S.A.

A great site, good information
to anyone from DE, USA: The British Army went on to fight
with all the mighty empire's might,
Because we're running short on time, we will now depart from rhyme
Do some reasearch of Britain's small wars. What Southeast Asian nation which consists of part island and part land did the British fight a guerrilla war in during the 1950's, then visit that guestbook too.

Enjoyed the account of the search for G. Bromhead's grave and the memorial. Having been born and raised in India of British parents I felt an affinity for that type of travel and search. Fascinating site indeed.
