Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

I have come across several individual references ro the erection of blue plaques to indicate where individuals lived with links to the Zulu war. is there a definitive list anywhere?

The plaques I have come across are:-

Cetshwayo - 18 Melbury Road W14
William Cooper - 6 Cranmer Road Worthing.
Frederick Hitch - 62 Cranbrook Road London

I am sure there must be others.

I thought as much, thanks.

I am a volunteer on the blue plaques web site openplaques.org, so this thread was interesting to me. Of those mentioned, we have:

Cetshwayo [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
William Cooper [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Frederick Hitch [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Frank Bourne [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

There is one for Ivor Rees [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but we only really collect the ones that mark where something happened (like 'born here', 'lived here', etc.)

I'd be interested if anyone has photographic evidence of a plaque to John Chard in Rochester Kent.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] says there is one for Thomas Collins in Pelcomb but I can't pinpoint the exact location
