In Defence of the Drift – A Gloster Boy Abroad – Paul Barnett

Event Date: January 22, 2019 at 19:30 Event Location: Lower Hall, Ross Baptist Church, Broad Street, Ross-on-Wye, HR9 7DY

This is not a transport related talk but Paul, who has to spoken to the Group on many previous occasions, was very keen to address us on this subject, so we’ve given in!  The date of the talk is the 140th anniversary of the battle at Rorkes Drift.  Paul says, “…the talk transports the audience from the sun baked plains of Victorian South Africa to the serein pastures of rural Churcham in Gloucestershire.  All the while setting the scene of the now long-forgotten tale of Forest boy Alfred Henry Hook, VC winner, whose epic exploits whilst at Rorkes Drift – January 22nd-23rd 1879, ultimately led to his starring, yet much aligned, role in the now famous blockbuster ‘Zulu’.”
