"Lt.-Col. William Weallens served with the famous 24th Regiment in the Zulu War of 1879. He was a Lieutenant with the 2nd Battalion on the fateful day of 22nd of January when 1200 of his colleagues were entirely wiped out by the Zulus at Isandlhwana. Others of the regiment mounted the equally famous defence of Rorkes Drift the following day, holding off 4000 Zulus and winning 11 Victoria Crosses. William Weallens had left the camp at Isandlhwana on the 22nd with Lord Chelmsford's column before the Zulus struck, he returned that night with Chelmsford's column only to find the massacre of his colleagues. Subsequently, William Weallens was chosen as part of the party to present the recovered Colours of the 24th to Queen Victoria (there is a photograph on the rorkesdriftvc.com website - Weallens is second from the left). Later he became Adjutant of the 24th and in that capacity received a presentation copy of the Regiment's History when it was published in 1892."
