The Battle of Rorke's Drift, also known as the Defence of Rorke's Drift, was an engagement in the Anglo-Zulu War. The successful British defence of the mission station of Rorke's Drift, under the command of Lieutenants John Chard of the Royal Engineers and Gonville Bromhead, of 24th Regiment of Foot began when a large contingent of Zulu warriors broke off from their main force during the final hour of the British defeat at the day-long Battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879, diverting 6 miles (9.7 km) to attack Rorke's Drift later that day and continuing into the following day. Just over 150 British and colonial troops defended the station against attacks by 3,000 to 4,000 Zulu warriors. The massive but piecemeal attacks by the Zulu on Rorke's Drift came very close to defeating the much smaller garrison, but were consistently repelled. Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders, along with a number of other decorations and honours. This is a very rare and desirable Zulu wars British 1879 South Africa medal to a soldier of the 24th Regiment of Foot. The 1877-8 clasp was awarded for fighting in operations against the Galekas & Gaikas, Chief Pokwane & the Griquas. In 1877 the Galekas & Gaikas attacked the Fingoe tribe, a small friendly tribe under british protection. Lieutenant General Sir Arthur Cunynghame went to punish them with a small force composed of about 50 mounted infantrymen of the 1/24 Foot, the 88th Foot (Connaught Rangers) & a Naval Brigade of 300 from HMS Active. These 2 expeditions ended by 18th June 1878. The medal has the Wyon Young head Queen Victoria obverse. The reverse shows an African Lion below South Africa with a Zulu shield & 4 Assegais in the exergue.
