Any Information relating to 1634 Pte William Dicks would be gratefully appreciated.

I have been in contact with Pete Dicks who is looking for information on 1634 Pte William Dicks.

From Peter Dicks.

“I'm trying to link my family to William Dicks 1634 B Company 24th who is buried in an unmarked grave. William was born in Islington and was a corporal before being demoted to the ranks and serving at Rorkes Drift. My daughter - in - law is of the Ndebele tribe from Zimbabwe and the tribe were of Zulu descent. Her fathers name was Ndluvu and it's said that one of their forefathers was a Zulu at Rorkes drift. Any help in linking the family to William would be appreciated.”

Pete already has the photo of 1634 Pte William Dicks un-marked grave as posted on the Pictorial-catalogue-Of Graves-Memorials.

Information can be posted on forum. Idea

Apparently official records frequently confuse him with Private James Dick (1697) and there is some confusion as to which one (if not both!) were present at Rorkes Drift. James Dick was awarded the South Africa Medal incorrectly named W Dicks.

James Dick was illiterate and probably not aware of the confusion.
