I am working on a diorama of Rorke's Drift and as with all of my dioramas, I strive for as much accuracy as possible. For example, I have read references to RD being littered with expended cartridge cases and cartridge packets after the battle. To depict this, I have been using cut up small brass safety pins for the cartridges and very light brown tissue paper for the packets. So does anyone have any idea of what dress the 24th Foot and other defenders of RD would have worn during the battle? The film Zulu of course tends to show the defenders, particularly those of the 24th, as being very spick and span and almost at parade standard. I suspect that as the fighting raged the coats may have been dispensed with. Or was discipline so tight in those Victorian times, that no relaxing of regulations would have been tolerated?
