Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

This post card was Sent to John on 3rd March 1930.

The post card read's

Addressed to
Private John S Jobbins
Late 24th Regiment.

Dear Private Jobbins
Please pardon me for the delay in acknowledging your kind letter of September last, I was very pleased to hear from you personally.
Thank you very much for so kindly giveing me your autograph as requested.
I am very proud to have it. It was very interesting reading about the bible presemted to you as a suivnear of Rouke's Drift. That the good god who presened you in battle fifty years ago may also give you good health and happiness for many year yet to come, is the sincere wish.

From E Ward
Berea,Durban,Natel,S Africa.


I have tryed tracing this lady but with no luck, if anyone can help with any info it would be great.

Mel. I don't know if you have a copy of the "The man Behind the medal" John Williams, V.C. a Biography.

Page 20 There is a very long letter sent by John to his parents describing the difficult conditions he and others were under while making their way to Helpmaakar and Rorke’s Drift. For copyright reasons I can not post, but I can photocopy the letter and e-mail it to you.
