"John Samuel Jobbins was born on July 18, 1856, at Queen Street in Newport. He was 22 when he took part in the defence of Rorke's Drift and wrote to his parents describing the scene. He said in the letter "Well we fought hard from about 3.30pm till the following morning when they retired, they killed about 12 of our men, but we killed at least 450 of them.They were charging over the sacks but we repulsed them. All that night a minister in the fort was praying they would go away. God helped us and gave us victory in the morning."

Quote:
"According to Private John Jobbins from ‘B’ company the Reverend Smith, in between handing out ammunition, was praying that the Zulus would go away and leave the garrison in peace."
