Pte. Francis Fitzpatrick

Zulu Wars Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Tullycorbet, County Monaghan, Ireland, he was serving as a private 94th Regiment (Connaught Rangers) when he performed the deeds for which he was awarded the VC. From his citation: "On 28th November, 1879 during attack on Sekukuni's Town, South Africa, Private Fitzpatrick and another private [Thomas Flawn, who was also awarded the VC] with six men of the Native Contingent, were with a Lieutenant of the first Dragoon Guards when he was badly wounded. The natives carried the wounded officer at first, but when the party was pursued by about 30 of the enemy the deserted and the lieutenant would have been killed but for the gallantry of the two Privates. One carrying him and the other covering the retreat and firing on the enemy." Fitzpatrick passed away in Dublin at the age of approximately 74. His VC medal is on display at the National Army Museum, London.

As we can see not technically a '' Zulu War '' VC , but a VC awarded during the Campaigns in South Africa , which commence in 1850's ( 1853 ? ) through to the end of 1879 . Certainly well deserved in any case . agree
