hi
Lietenant Colonel Frank Bourne was born in April 27, 1854 – May 8, 1945 (VE day) (aged 91-he was the last known survivor of the battle of Rorkes Drift).
He joined the army at the age of 18 in 1872 in the next four years he was promoted up to Colour Sergant (He was the youngest CS in the British Army at the time) which gave him the nickname of 'the kid'.
He helped organise the defence of the mission station at Rorkes Drift. For his cool and calm actions he was awarded the DCM. After South Africa he served in Burma and British India. He was commissioned in 1890, having declined immediately after Rorke`s Drift. He was appointed Adjutant of the School of Musketry at Hythe, Kent, and retired in 1907.
With the first world war breaking out he re enlisted in the army and by 1918 he had been given the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and made an OBE.

Joe. Some good posts. But try typing the name of the person you are intending to post information on in the search box bottom of home page. Make sure you tick the box inside. You will find lots of information on some of the chaps you are posting about; it might save you sometime, as I see some of the information you are posting already is on the forum.
