"Came across this on the web. Not sure if it's true. Can anyone confirm.
Even Hook, who survived Rorke's Drift, had a price to pay. When he returned to Wales he found that his wife, thinking he was dead, had sold all his belongings and remarried. Private Henry Hook, VC, ended his career as a cloakroom attendant in the British Museum."
Thought this was interesting and deserved its own thread. Thanks to Dave for this. Anyone know what became of Mrs Hook and her subsequent marriage?
I have searched the internet too and can find no more info on Hook's wife over and above the superficial info above.
