Finally getting some of these #historic units done in #tacoma
The Battle of Rorke's Drift was fought between the 22-23 January 1879, as part of the Anglo-Zulu war. About 4000 Zulu warriors attacked the Rorke's Drift Mission station. The mission station only had a garrison of only about 150 British and colonial defending soldiers. The massive but piecemeal Zulu attacks on Rorke's Drift came very close to defeating the much smaller garrison, but were ultimately repelled. Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders, along with a number of other decorations and honours. About 17 British soldiers were killed and about 15 seriously wounded, almost every defending soldier had some kind of wound or injury after the battle. Over 400 Zulu warriors were killed and about 600 were wounded. Once the Zulu warriors reached the wall, they fired at the defending British soldiers with a few of their own firearms. After a while, the two forces where pinned down into fierce hand to hand combat. They were all exhausted, having fought for the better part of ten hours and were running low on ammunition. Of 20,000 rounds in reserve at the mission, only 900 remained. As dawn broke, the British could see that the Zulus had fled. All that remained were the dead and severely wounded. The Battle of Rorke's Drift, shall always be remembered as one  of the most desperate, gruesome and heroic last stands in history.  ___________________ Tag 2 friends!

#petra #jordan . The close up of the tomb at the end of the narrow path that starts for a stretch of 10 miles . Walking the path or using the mules for 10 bucks is the only way to get this magnificent architecture . #travelblogger #historic #places_wow #travelphotography #instagood
