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?”

PostSubject: Son of 2-24/1240 CSgt William Wilson Allen VC (or Allan)   Son of  2-24/1240 CSgt William Wilson Allen VC (or Allan) EmptySat Jul 21, 2018 6:48 pm

Prior to the AZW, when the then Corporal Allen was stationed at the Regimental Depot in Brecon, he married a local girl Sarah Ann Reeves on 16 August 1876. They were to have 2 sons and 6 daughters (one daughter, Jessie died in infancy and is commemorated on Allen's headstone). Their eldest son was named Llewellen Glendower Allen who was born in Brecon in August 1880. He have seen a note that he enlisted into South Wales Borderers and served with 2nd Battalion in South Africa during the Anglo-Boer war. On the SWB medal roll for the QSA there is 6511 Pte Allen, L. awarded QSA with 5 clasps but no KSA because he was one of those posted to 1st Battalion in India before the end of the war. Llewellen Allen died at Bedwellty only aged 30 in 1910. Is SWB/6511 the right man?

Another small point not recorded by Norman Holme is that Sarah Reeves's sister Mary married 25B/1410 Pte William Partridge in 1880. Pte Partridge was also a defender at Rorke's Drift.
