Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Thought it would be a good excercise to try and list the names of those who claimed to have been at Rorkes Drift during the Battle.

This one must have claimed to have been a VC winner at Rorkes Drift.

"Walting" was a lot easier and probably a lot more prolific in the pre-internet days.

Interesting that no one from the military is mentioned as having attended his funeral?

There must have been many 'Old Soldiers' back in day that told their stories in pubs for a pint or two, and much of it must have been believed by others as being 'fact', so when the old bloke passed on, they would most likely assume that these tales were true and that is why they get credited with being somewhere they weren't. It is a good job there are some good researchers and historians who can delve into these sort of things and get to the bottom of it all. I wonder if there has ever been headstones, etc, that have been altered after it was found out that the 'old soldier' was fibbing about his whereabouts?
