The Zulus are coming........... they are here!!
So was the cry from the small garrison at Rorke's Drift, Natal on 22 January
1879, when 120 men stood against a force of 4,000 well disciplined Zulu
warriors. There was no option for the men of B Company, 2nd/24th Regiment
but to stand and fight. For twelve hours the red-coated soldiers held out
against the superior force. Eleven Victoria Crosses were hard-won that day.
The successors to those gallant red-coated soldiers - The Royal Regiment of
Wales (24th/41st Foot) - will launch its new look updated website on November 30th. The site offers a wealth of information about this famous regiment,
its two museums, and will appeal to fans, researchers and newcomers of all
The site is very easy to navigate and provides a fullest account of the
Regiment available on-line. It gives a detail and fascinating history of 300
years of service plus unique links which offer advice on finding a former
comrade or family relative who served with the Regiment.
Access the site at http://rrw.org.uk and join the Zulu Club, a society for
enthusiasts and supporters which provides regular on-line newsletters and

website has been developed by the staff at the Regiment's two museums with
design and technical help from BBC Resources in Cardiff.
