I understand that I am related to Corp. William Allen (Great great grand son) so I was interested to read about this part of history.

I am a serving police officer with the Metropolitan police service. My colleages and i through our hard work have found the lack of respect from the public towards us and people (old and young) who have fought for this great country very upsetting. Your web sight has gone a long way to reasuring me that what we do IS worth while and it makes me proud to be British. Thank you and keep up the good work.

i am 16 years of age and have always had an acute
interest in british military history, i would imagine stemming from the countless times i watched the film "zulu" when i was younger. this site is extremely interesting, particularly when you compare the characters in the film to the men who actually fought all those years ago

What a wonderful site. I have been intrested in the Zulu wars for more than 20 years. Thank you for creating a living memorial to those brave men at Rorkes Drift. Their heroic actions will go on and inspire those who are in uniform all over the free world.

i am 16 years old, and have been fascinated by the zulu wars since watching the film zulu as a kid, i never really knew anything on a factual level about the battle, but now i do. thankyou very much for this site, im sure that the men who actually fought in the zulu wars and battles would be pleased to know that their memory lives and that they have not been forgotten.

This was taken from the belfast telegraph 1936.
The death took place on sunday at his home 22 dundee street (shankill rd) belfast of MR.RICHARD MUSSEN,who saw active service in the zulu war.The late MR MUSSEN,who was in his 76th year,joined the Royal Inniskilling fusiliers (27th Foot),at the age of 15,and on the outbreak of the Zulu War three years later volunteered for active service.He was transferred to the 2nd Battalion South Wales Borderers (24th Foot),and was one of 65 survivors of that regiment which held the position at Rorke`s Drift against repeated Zulu attacks.In 1880 he was invalided home.On the outbreak of the Great War he joined the 9th Battalion Royal Ulster Rifles (36th Divison),and with him went his four sons and two sons in law. He was drafted to home service, and after being stationed at Ballykinler and Clandeboye was put on munition work. Full military honours were accorded the funeral, which took place this afternoon at the city cemetary. If anyone has any information regarding the above please email me.

Internet at its best! Makes one wonder what these brave men on both sides at Rorke's Drift would have thought about beingt immortal in cyberspace. Thank you for a great site, greetings from Finland.

an inspiring site, and a great source of historically correct information about Rorke's Drift. The de Neuville oil painting is in the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra and due to its staggering size is also truly inspiring.

The film Zulu is one of my favourite films of all time. And I've always wondered how much of it was based on real fact. Thanks to your brilliant site I'm finally finding out about that.

An excellent sight. I wish there were more like it. Keep up the good work.
Does anyone know of a source for a video copy of "Zulu Dawn" or better yet one on DVD?
From the United States,

What an excellent site.
I have visited the grave of Pte.Henry Hook on a number of occasions, and have made one visit to the grave of Lt.John Rouse Merriott Chard. Your site has inspired me to make visits to as many as the other VC graves as possible.

One of the most intresting and well thought out websites I've encountered. Packed with usefull and historical information and its good to see the real men behind the movie.
