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

Does anyone know how to purchase Kris Wheatley’s Legacy series of books. The link for the Legacy web site no longer works and I understand there are now 10 books. I have 1-6 but I’m keen, having just returned from Rorkes Drift, to rekindle my Interest in the people at the battle by increasing my collection.

Seems a bit odd. I wonder if books 7-10 were published by JWB like books 1-6. Perhaps I will try them.

Hi 90th
It seems very sad that after all the work that Kris put in, these titles are unavailable. I have just realised they were originally published by James W Bancroft (the author) from Eccles and I don’t know whether he is still operating as a publisher.
Admin says PM Kris directly but I can’t seem to find a Personal Message function on the forum.
Stevo H

Hello 90th
Ignore the last comment I have just realised the PM function only appears on the full version of the site not the App I was using on my IPad.

I have all JWB's output, his work on the war and especially Rorkes Drift defender's
i greatly admire, i think his work is underestimated, privately published, his work is
comprehensive and presented in a very accessible format, load's of text and great
quality illustration's and contemporary photograph's. i have a few of Ms Wheatley's
work, maybe three from memory, i have no wish for any more.

Hello Xhosha2000

I couldn’t agree more. J W Bancroft is excellent.
