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 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."
