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.

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.
