I was flicking through the pages of Zulu War and its Origin, and found that the author makes reference to a Native Groom that had feigned death throughout the night for fear of being killed by the British, being mistaken for a Zulu. In the morning he followed the column back to Rorkes Drift at a distance. But nothing is said if he arrived at Rorke's Drift. Doe's anyone know if he didi or not, he could have held the answers to many questions.

You would have thought, he would have been questioned as he was actually in the camp when it was over run. Who's groom was he. scratch

Hi all .
This will be like looking for a needle in a haystack ! . There are 14 listed with no details in England's Sons ,
only where you can find their stories ! . The only one which fits the criteria is Anonymous - Native Wagon Driver - ( A)
'' His remarks are recorded by Capt . W.P. Symons , Wounded , he remained hidden in the rocks till night . '' Then hobbled
across the river '' . There will have been others , who , sadly their stories are lost to history. Suspect .
cheers 90th.
