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?”

Recent acquisition:  Cards of members of the Port Elizabeth Club--some with signatures---with names with which you are certainly familiar.

Question: Does anyone have any information on this Port Elizabeth Club?
Just found some info on google--started in 1866.

This club is down in Bird Street, PE, and later amalgamated with the St Georges Club and is now called the PE St Georges Club.
It was an exclusive gentleman's club much like the Victoria Club in Pietermaritzburg and the Durban Club on the Victoria Embankment. It excluded from membership any people of colour or other religious denominations as well as the fairer sex.
It's members were the movers and shakers of the colony including amongst other notables Sir Walter Healy-Hutchison.
Balls held there were grand social affairs with gentleman all appearing in their military uniforms with all the bells and whistles attached and the ladies in their finest finery.
Music was provided by a military band.

Yes, Pete, I think it is the same. It looks like some of our Zulu War boys were up there in "High Cotton"
society-wise!
