1901 South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War. They were built by the British to protect the railway bridges from Boer attacks. The stone is local while the remaining materials were imported from Britain. These Blockhouses could house 20 men with water, ammunition and supplies stored on the lower floor. The "living" area was the middle floor and was accessible by a retractable ladder and the top floor was the "look-out" deck. Only 1000 of these Blockhouses were built.

Angol-Boer War Rice "Pepperpot" blockhouse and its standard seven-man crew. This style of blockhouse was the most common due to its quick construction and cheap cost versus the stone blockhouse.

Rorke's Drift forgotten hero finally honoured 134 years on from the Zulu war

Pte David Jenkins was one of the outnumbered defenders of Roarke's Drift. His family wanted his role in the hand-to-hand fighting recognised but had no solid proof until they saw him in a drawing by Victorian artist Lady Elizabeth Butler on the National Army Museum website. She sketched survivors for her famous painting which now hangs in Windsor Castle. In it, Pte Jenkins’ family believe he can be seen firing through a barricade of sacks as Zulus battle to take the compound.
