On this day in 1879 the defence of the mission station of Rorke’s Drift, under the command of Lieutenant John Chard of the Royal Engineers, takes place. The battle immediately followed the British Army’s defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879, and continued into the following day, 23 January.

Just over 150 British and colonial troops successfully defended the garrison against an intense assault by 3,000 to 4,000 Zulu warriors. The massive, but piecemeal, Zulu attacks on Rorke’s Drift came very close to defeating the tiny garrison but were ultimately repelled. Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders, along with a number of other decorations and honours, no other regiment has been awarded more VC’s for a single action since. 

The action was forever immortalized by the 1964 film Zulu.
