Does anybody have a photograph of this particular private's grave. I believe it's in Anfield Cemetery, Liverpool, and it would be very interesting to have a look at - i'm led to believe it lists him as a Rorke's Drift defender!

Many thanks admin for that confirmation. I'm currently writing a section in my dissertation about soldiers who, caught up with the fervour caused by the war, later claimed to have taken part at Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift - Private Richard Hankinson of the 80th for instance claimed to have been one of twelve survivors of Isandlwana, but was stationed with Wood's column for the entire duration of the war! Would you mind if I include this image in my appendix? (copyright will be acknowledged/paid for of course) :)
