At least two Canadians were killed serving in the British Army during the Zulu War of 1879. One, Captain George Vaughan Wardell of 1/24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment, was among the 800 British soldiers slain during the disastrous battle of Isandhlwana. A native of Toronto and aged 38, Wardell was born of a military family, his father having served in the 66th Regiment, 93rd Highlanders and the Royal Canadian Rifles. At Isandhlwana he commanded 'H' Company of the 24th, which formed part of the centre of the British line and occupied the fringe of the gap punched through by the Zulu right horn. Flanked, Wardell and his men fought on with the bayonet until they were overhwelmed and annihilated
