Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Just to let forum members know that there are plans to erect a new headstone over the unmarked grave of Rorke's Drift Defender Joseph Bromwich 24th Regiment in Bilston Cemetery, Staffordshire.

Joseph's medal was recently sold at auction, and the cost of the new memorial is being met by the seller, buyer and Auction House.

I will keep the forum updated with regard to the rededication event which is likely to be later in the summer.

Regards,

Tim

I can't claim credit for this one, I've just been asked to help co-ordinate the re-ded later on in the year.

The new headstone to Joseph Bromwich has been erected in Bilston cemetery (photos to follow), congratulations to all those involved.

News regarding a rededication later on in the year will hopefully be forthcoming before too long.

"These attachments may be of interest for anyone attending the Bromwich rededication this coming Sunday.

Parking is a little limited within the cemetery itself, so may be best to park on or around Cemetery Street.
On completion of the ceremony, all are invited to an informal reception at Bilston Sports & Social Club on Wellington Road, WV14 6AY, approximately 350 yards from the cemetery gates.

Regards,
Tim"

Honour to all who served in the AZW on both side's.. i personally
side with the Zulu.. I'm glad Bromwich got his marker, a lot of
people did not!. maybe i'm missing something.. but reading the
rant above i think that a simple apology with corrections would
have sufficed. a bit over the top to say the least!.the author comes
across like its all about him..it's all about Joseph Bromwich!, cheers
