Mr Gibson was at Rorke's Drift and The Battle of Ulundi with my Great Grandfather Alfred Dennis, and they remained friends in later life.
We believe that it was my Great Grandfather who helped stonemason Gibson make the coffins for Lieutenants Melvill and Coghill. (If anyone has any information on that it would be great).
