I was told by a friend. That a Rorkes Drift defender. Shot an Zulu inDuna that was standing on a hill directing the Zulu attack . Is this true. Does anyone know the name of the defender. And what was the distance of his target (roughly)

Long Range Shot by defender at Rorkes Drift. True Or False Empty
PostSubject: Re: Long Range Shot by defender at Rorkes Drift. True Or False   Long Range Shot by defender at Rorkes Drift. True Or False EmptyWed Apr 29, 2009 10:13 pm

I found this from Hooks Account:

"We had plenty of ammunition, but we were told to save it and so we took careful aim at every shot, and hardly a cartridge was wasted. One of my comrades, Private Dunbar, shot no fewer than nine Zulus, one of them being a chief."
