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)

I have heard of this. but I can't remember where I read it. But it must have been a good shot, the conditions must have been just right.

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."
