Men of Harlech, stop your dreaming!

Rorke’s Drift was a mission station in Natal, South Africa, situated near a natural ford (drift) on the Buffalo River at 28°20′57″S, 30°32′3″ECoordinates: 28°20′57″S, 30°32′3″E. During the Anglo-Zulu War, the defence of Rorke’s Drift (22 January-23 January 1879) immediately followed the British Army’s defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana earlier in the day. One hundred and thirty-nine British soldiers successfully defended their garrison against an intense assault by four to five thousand Zulu warriors. The overwhelming Zulu attack on Rorke’s Drift came a hair’s breadth away from defeating the tiny British garrison. The successful defence of the outpost is held as one of history’s finest defences.

The British Soldiers start singing this, 2 minutes into the video:

“Men of Harlech”

Men of Harlech, stop your dreaming
Can’t you see their spearpoints gleaming
See their warrior pennants streaming
To this battle field

Men of Harlech stand ye steady
It can not be ever said ye
For the battle were not ready
Welshmen never yield

From the hills rebounding
Let this war cry sounding
Summon all at Cambria’s call
The mighty foe surrounding

Men of Harlech on to glory
This will every be your story
Keep these burning words before ye
Welshmen will not yield
