Steve
A letter from Bourne himself - he would have been an old man then!
I wonder if "Stoneroof", Dorking, Surrey, is still standing and if so, if it has a blue plaque on it?
Is Bourne buried in Dorking, if he lived there in old age?

The Blue Plaque is on his house in King's Hall Road Beckenham.

This quote is from the RDVC site. "Frank Bourne died on V.E Day, 8th May 1945 at the age of 90. He is buried with his wife Eliza in the Elmers End Cemetery. Frank was the last defender of Rorke's Drift to die. Frank and his wife made their home in Beckenham from 1909 to 1931, with his longest period being at 16 Kings Hall Road. Shortly after the death of Eliza, he moved to live with his daughter in Dorking."

The house in Dorking is where he died. It can be seen on Google (the yellow shop).

Many times I stood at mission station at Rorke's Drift, listening to the local guide telling the enthralling story of the famous defence and participants.  But you begin to think 'why let a good story get in the way of the truth'.  Frank Bourne did not die on VE Day 1945 but on the 9th May 1945 - the day after - you can check this from the entries in The Times newspaper for 11th and 14th May 1945 and of course this is date on his headstone.  This rumour was probably started by David Rattray.

Never noticed that!

Look at the date in his memorial.
