Hi Guys, the defence of Rourkes Drift during the Zulu War of 1879 has now entered into legend due to Victorian propaganda of the time, the highest number of VC's awarded for a single action, and of course in a large part due to the film "Zulu". So I though you might be interested to know that 3 men who took part in the action lie buried in Ruddington graveyard in Nottinghamshire. (My family is from the village and as part of my family tree project I have been photographing the graves.) I guess this is fairly unusual to find several men who fought there all buried in one place. Their names are:
As you can see, the graves are well maintained.
