Littlehand .
I've never heard of a Henry Goodall being at RD , and I'm certain that at least a few of those that DID take part
died after 1932 ! . From memory didnt Colour Sgt Bourne do his Radio interview after that date ???. Unfortunatley
a few of these publications or publicised accounts etc etc , clearly didnt have the tools , time or inclination , to check such claims . Many spurious accounts have been posted since the inception of this Forum , and no doubt , on the RDVC Forum as well , now that these accounts are being posted we can finally weed them out and clearly disregard those that arent '' quite right '' ! .
Suspect Suspect . I also checked Julian's Englands' Sons quickly , and not surprisingly
no ' Goodall ' . Happy to be corrected ! .
90th Salute

Hi All

After a little research into this claim, I have come up with the following.

He was Private 1715 Henry Goodall, 2nd 24th.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Now from his Service record, we can see that he arrived in South Africa far to late to have taken part in the Defence of Rorke's Drift, but could have been or past Rorke's Drift before going into Zululand.

Henry is reported to have died in Birmingham. On his Service Record he enlisted at Walsall which is located northwest of Birmingham and east of Wolverhampton. Historically a part of Staffordshire.

So I believe this is our man and was not part of the Defence of Rorke's Drift, but very happy to be corrected. Salute
