Kris Wheatley first learned about Rorke's Drift after seeing a painting of the Battle in the house of her grandparents and later learnt that the possible artist was her great grandfather, Private Caleb Wood, one of the defenders.

LEGACY:Heroes of Rorke's Drift' is the result of in depth research, of which has never been equalled.


The stories of the not so well know defenders, But they were there, the same as those that were warded the VC's. Kris's work covers from the birth of the defenders until their deaths. There are some very heart rendering facts about the lives of these hero's based on facts not fiction. Discovered by pure deication and hard work from the Author.

The rededication of the graves of Caleb Wood and Robert Tongue, Ruddington's Rorke's Drift Survivors. The ceremony in Shaw Street Cemetery was attended by over 500 people, including the Lord Mayor of Nottingham, the Mayor of Rushcliffe, representatives of the regiment and descendants of the two soldiers being commemorated. The Band of the Prince of Wales Division led a procession from The Green to the cemetery, where a most moving service was held, concluding with the Last Post, followed by two minutes silence, the laying of wreaths on the graves and a rifle volley by members of the 1879 Group.
