Thank you SRB1965
I was aware of most of what you have said and thank you.
My point was that the Battle was named after Rorkes Drift, a place on a map, the river crossing, not after the actual name of the buildings. They had a different name after James Rorke lived there and Witt renaming it Oscarsburg mission station before the war, therefore the buildings not being called Rorkes Drift, but the river crossing.
I was just entering into a general conversation on the point as raised by the name of the mission station at that time, and that the battle was perhaps named after a point on the map that everyone could understand, especially back in Great Britain at the time.
Julian thank you, yes, a few ships named after him too.
