Can't say I've ever heard of James O'Gorman being a RD Defender ? .

Hi 90th

Not a Rorke's Drift Defender but another one that the Newspaper's claim he was.

Hi

I have always believed that it so easy for someone to say (maybe in the pub) 'I was at Rorke's Drift in the Zulu war' and before you know it, the local press has you 'AT' Rorke's Drift, and then that ball is picked up by larger press groups.....etc etc

Hi Simon

I have to agree with you there, Chinese whispers.


An interesting note about O'Gorman is that at the time of Isandlwana & Rorke's Drift, his rank is listed as a Lad.

Hi

Interestingly enough, if (and its only an 'if' because I am not an expert at this sort of thing) James Gorman enlisted under an alias.......

I think (if the chap I am looking at in the family tree site is right) he was plain James Gorman and as 'Oirish' as me.....he father appears to have been born in Hampshire, the same as James

Cheers
