EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the stoic and resolute gaze of John Rouse Merriott Chard, V.C., a British Army officer renowned for his heroic actions during the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. The image, taken in the late 19th century, shows Chard in military uniform, adorned with his Victoria Cross medal, the highest award for valor in the British military. The medal, with its distinctive blue ribbon and a Maltese cross, is proudly displayed on his left chest. Chard's moustache and sideburns, a common style during the era, add to the historical authenticity of the image. Chard's military career began in 1862 when he joined the Royal Engineers, and he gained notoriety during the Battle of Rorke's Drift, which took place on January 22, 1879. During the battle, Chard, who was the commanding officer of the garrison, led his men in defending the mission station against a large Zulu army. Despite being vastly outnumbered, Chard and his men held their ground, repelling the enemy for 12 hours. Chard's leadership and bravery during the battle earned him the Victoria Cross, the first award of this decoration for the Anglo-Zulu War. The photograph, taken in an oval format, provides a glimpse into the past, offering a tangible connection to a pivotal moment in military history. The image is a testament to Chard's courage and the unwavering determination of the British military during the Anglo-Zulu War. This photograph, from the esteemed Mary Evans Picture Library, is an essential addition to any collection of historical military images or for those interested in the Anglo-Zulu War and the heroic actions of John Rouse Merriott Chard.
