Just a quick question.
Doe's anyone know which RD defender had the longest military services regardless of any gaps. As I'm aware that some of the defenders rejoined when the great war started.

Evan Jones clocked up 50 years military service. For further details see Volume 7 "Legacy Heroes of Rorke's Drift" page 25 to 33'. And he really doe's look like one guy you wound mess with.

24th. It does say credited with the longest military services. I wouldn't doubt the author's research. So I would take it a fact until otherwise proven not to be the case.
