I'm a new member and I find the AZW subject matter very interesting. My interest in this period started when I went to visit John Rouse Merriott Chard's grave at St John the Baptist Churchyard, Hatch Beauchamp in Somerset. The church has a stained glass window donated by Stanley Baker and a reef from queen Victoria. The grave is quiet and unassuming. There is a photo online of Stanley Baker sat next to the grave and Stanley is looking upon the grave with a thoughtful, almost sad look about him. I am interested to know why other members are interested in this period of history and I also think its a nice way for a new member to find out a little bit about fellow members of this site. (Many Thanks)

For most on hereb,it was the film. Ian Knight the most leading authority on the Zulu War was taken to see the movie, by his father. Quite often something new will emerge, that takes certain events down another path.
