|We created rorkesdriftvc.com, in partnership with the Museums of Royal
Regiment of Wales, to provide through the world wide web a lively and
informative focal point for those interested in this famous action at
Rorke's Drift and in the 1879 Anglo-Zulu war in general. Having started in
a modest way, we have been overwhelmed by responses from all over the world.
Our guestbook, which continues to grow, now contains many fine tributes to
our small technical team who maintain the site.
We have always been against advertising on the site, even though it would
generate income, and pay for the running costs, as we have always firmly
believed that commercialisation of the web is killing the reasons it exists
in the first place, ie: as a source of information and a route to contact
people of a similar interest - We recently added the RRW shop, which allows
people to buy product from the museum in Brecon, but due to the increasing
number of visits, and bandwidth usage, we have now been prompted to add a
secure donations page to the site in the hope that many of you may wish to
show your appreciation in a more tangible way.
These donations, through the regimental museums, will enable us to continue
to provide a high standard of service and to develop the site still further.
Naturally, we shall continue to take notice of your valued comments and
ideas in the guestbook when considering new features.
Thank you for your support!
Unfortunately, due to the fees involved in processing credit cards
we are unable to process donations of less than £5.
