2/24/1240 Corporal William Wilson Allen (or Allan) B Coy. 2nd Battn. 24th Regiment. -AWARDED VC

William Wilson Allen, VC ( 1844 ? – 12 March 1890) was an English recipient of the Victoria Cross (VC), the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces.

He was about 35 years old, a sergeant who had recently been reduced in rank to Corporal for being drunk on duty. He was in the 2nd Battalion, 24th Regiment of Foot (later The South Wales Borderers), British Army during the Zulu War when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC.
On 22 January and 23 January 1879 at Rorke's Drift, Natal, South Africa, Corporal Allan and another man (Frederick Hitch) kept communication with the hospital open, despite being severely wounded. Their determined conduct enabled the patients to be withdrawn from the hospital, and when incapacitated by their wounds from fighting, they continued, as soon as their wounds were dressed, to serve out ammunition to their comrades during the night.

Same for this Wilson reduced in Rank. (Not your man i know)

I would have thought that a lot of the defenders turned to the Bottle, after what they went through... Demotion probably didn't mean that much to them. Lets face it when they left the army, the army simply forgot about them. Idea
