The 1/24 th Foot at Rorke's Drift :

25/56 Sergeant Edward Wilson
25B/135 Private William Beckett Patient's hospital
25B/568 Private Patrick Desmond
1-24/1861 Private William Horrigan Patient's hospital
25B/295 Private David Jenkins
25B/841 Private James Jenkins Patient's hospital
25B/625 Private Edward Nicholas Patient's hospital
25/B372 Private Thomas Payton
1-24/1542 Private William Roy Patient's hospital
25B/104 Private Henry Turner
1-24/447 Private John Waters

Firstly: None of these patients above, are war wounded of the January 12, 1879 battle, they are all sick.

Secondly :On the January 12, 1879... After taking the village of Sihayo, the third column is left with 10 Zulu prisoners intact and 4 zulu wounded and also prisoners .also except the 25B/295 Private David Jenkins ,who escorted the prisoners on the list above, where and when?, those who were not sick were part of the escort ?

Thirdly : You know the total number of men of this escort ,except the 25B/295 Private David Jenkins of which units, these men were and And what is their date of arrival at destination?

Fourthly : I do not understand that the 25B/295 Private David Jenkins remained in RD that has no sense!

24 th

It is not whether or not if the 25B/295 Private David Jenkins was or not at RD , that interested me but it's the 1/24 th in the battle of RD and the "why" of the comings and goings of some men of this brave battalion between Zululand and Natal between 12 January 1879 and 22 January 1879... Very Happy

I'm hoping Impi is incorrect when he says, it will be information we have seen or already know about, but re-worded. And not just a load of what if's.

I'm fairly confident that Julian wouldn't say something he could do if he couldn't. It wouldn't do his reputation as an Historian any good. I just hope its not just about those old ledgers in the museum.

Have no fear, Julian is not wasting his time, and all those of you that have abused and 'had a bash' at Julian and doubted if Pte David Jenkins was at RD, will hopefully get a very rude awakening when Julian 'comes up with the goods' and produces 'the evidence'.

Is a case of rude awakening or headlock. I think not! It just goes to show that some people are willing to accept what they are told to accept, because others say so.

Then there are others who seek alittle more, before they accept it as fact, if that is the case. I don't think JW is doing this to get an apology, he is doing to set the record straight. The poll was a close run thing, that showed what I have said above.

Well done, pretty close to the truth. Julian has a much wider audience than this forum ( sorry Pete no offence intended ). And his research is done as a profesion, not as an emotive issue.
One things for sure he does not take chances such as a number of other researchers/authors are known to do. His research is pretty solid and if a mistake occurs he is the first to acknowledge.

Lets wait and see shall we.

Cheers

Of course Julian's record speaks
for its self.i listen attentively..
when he speaks.i dont see many
others rushing around doing this
research which must be so time
consuming,and all for our better
understanding.he's a top bloke.

Probably not well known but all the profits from the sales of his essays/papers sold through the Brecon Museum go towards the upkeep of the museum.

I dont know Julian personally he has been
good enough to point me in the right
direction, and always with good humour
and patience.but this thread makes me
wonder, how many of his armchair critics
have actually produced ANYTHING to further
our better understanding of this fascinating
chapter of british history..no axe to grind..
but like iv'e said i have been watching this
site for years before i jumped in ( with a big
intentional splash.)

All you trolls remember.."The Horn's of the
Buffalo". ( that was a stratagem.)

His continuing research enriches our better
understanding.and even on a basic level we
all DESERVE respect. cheers xhosa2000

From the Cambrian, c. March 1905

Hero of Rorke's Drift

Sergeant Henry Hook VC, formerly of the South Wales Borderers, died at Gloucester on Sunday, age 54. Deceased, who won his Victoria Cross in the Defence of Rorke's Drift, was attendant at the British Museum for twenty years, and recently retired owing to ill health, his Victoria Cross pension of £10 being increased to £50 by the War Office.
The cause of death was consumption. He leaves a widow and two little daughters.
SWANSEA VETERAN RECALLS HIM.
Mr David Jenkins, who is employed at the Swansea Corporation Yard, is a survivor of the historic Rorke's Drift fight, and to him a 'Post' man repaired on Monday.
"Oh, yes," responded the ex-24th hero; "I remember Hook well; but he was not in my battalion. I was in the 1st, and he was a private in the 'B' Company of the second 24th. I recollect now," continued the veteran, reflectively, "that he was on the roof doing his bit towards keeping off the Zulus. We had, as you know, 27 out of 128 killed, but accounted for over 800 of the enemy. No, he wasn't wounded; but he got his VC all right, and well he deserved it. A quiet fellow, but a good fighter. But, there, we all had to fight."

Was "Hook" on the roof at one point? I thought he was inside the hospital and from there to the wall. And " Hook" was wounded forehead wound!

Thirty years later Jenkins has clearly confused Hook with Hitch.

I will not be hurried by those ignorant of the process of research, writing, obtaining permissions under copyright laws, and the process of printing and proof-reading.  When I write I like it to be perfect and unassailable.  I am currently on target, as I said weeks ago, for publication sometime between the end of August and mid-September.  When the doc goes to the printers I'll let you know and as soon as it's generally available I'll let you know.

One more for the pot !

from South Wales Daily Post, July 1900

"Ex-Private Jenkins, of Swansea, one of the heroic defenders of Rorke's Drift, and who it will be remembered sat for Lady Butler's famous picture of that title, has received the following letter from Lady Butler, Government House, Devonport, July 15th, 1900.-
'Sir-, In answer to your enquiry I write to say that my picture of 'Rorke's Drift' has never been engraved, otherwise I would long ago have had the pleasure of sending you an artist's proof in recognition of the great pains you took with the sittings you gave me for that picture. Hoping you are well, I remain, yours very truly, Elizabeth Butler.'
Ex-Private Jenkins is at present employed as storekeeper by the Swansea Corporation."

No 

We are talking August- Mid- September this year?
Wasn't Hitch wounded. Rolling Eyes 

Sherman. The letter is merely pointing that Jenkins sat for Lady Bulers painting. Most of the RD defenders were overseas and it's well known that other soldiers who DID NOT take part in the defence stood in. You could say to complete the picture!

Come on, as Julian says. It was 30 years after the event, he's bound to have forgotten some things about the battle.

Being there might have help?
