Is it known if Bromhead & Chard remained friends after the Battle Of Rorkes Drift. Is there any documentation that shows they stayed in touch or even met up for a reunion of some kind.

Hi all

The only thing that is certain is that they have suffered a lot of jealousy ...

Salute

Did they not become acquainted at RD?
They were not friends before RD to my knowledge - happy to be corrected. I like to think though that after an experience like RD, they would have remained bonded, if not acquinted from there on.
Is there any record of Chard having attended Bromhead's funeral in 1891?

Hi Tasker .
Not sure if they were friends before R.D or not . As Bromhead died in India I doubt very much that Chard would have been at the funeral , where was Chard when Bromhead died in 1891 ?.
cheers 90th. Salute

I would have assumed not, but am happy to be directed to any evidence that they did.

Hi Pascal.
We dont know for sure if they knew each other or not , so most likely the answer is no , as they were in differant Regts.
They most likely met at R.D as they were there for a few days before the column crossed the river into zululand . I'd say they didnt know each other prior to arriving at R.D .
cheers 90th. Salute

Yes Gary

, before reaching RD, they were never seen this, but between their respective arrivals and 22, as officers, have caused it to know ...

Salute
