Best day was saturday.

The desendants of the Zulu commanders of Rorke's Drfit and Isandlwana were there.
Fred Hitches and John Williams desendants were there also.
Ian Knight gave a good talk, as did the Prince.

Adrian Greaves gave me the honour of holding the real Victoria Cross awarded to James Dalton
for the Defence of Rorke's Drfit. It was a real honour.

Cheers

Echo EH. The chap giving the talk should take it up for a living, he could certainly give some of the well known a run for their money. Salute
