Musician Charles Roper was a member of the HMS Shah's Naval Brigade landed during the Zulu War.

On 25 October, 1879 the townsfolk of Portsea and Gosport gave a banquet for the soldiers and sailors who had taken part in the Zulu War. Present were sailors from HMS Active and HMS Shah, as well as some members of the 24th including Corporal Allen of Rorke's Drift.

There was entertainment including a performance by Charles Roper which drew much applause. He performed many of the tunes that the bands played on the march to relieve Fort Eshowe. "The Graphic", November 1, 1879 included a sketch of Roper playing the fiddle. See link below.
