I guess I should know. But there appears to be a wall made out of stone with lots of squared windows. Which would be excellent for rifleman. Was this used during the battle of Rorkes Drift for that purpose?

hi,
It would be great cover for soldiers, just a thought, might it have been built after the battle?

hi littlehand / joe.
The wall with the firing positions was indeed put up after the battle , and it wasnt very long after that another fort was built
not to far from R.D named Fort Melvill.
cheers 90th.
