I have just finished, reading LEGACY Volume 7 by Kris Wheatley who's research details the lifes of Privates Evan Jones and Charles Mason of B Company 2/24th; Private William Roy 1/24th who was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for his role in the defence of Rorke's Drift; and Gunner Abraham Evans of N Battery Royal Artillery.
Like always I highly recommend this book, for those interested in the life’s of the hero’s we so often discuss. Evan Jones only had one life, the army. Probably one of the longest serving soldiers in British history.
William Roy’s life held a deep dark secret, which eventually led to his demise.
