Gloucester Civic Trust Talk – Henry Hooke
February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Wednesday 21 February – Henry Hooke, Paul Barnett
Those who saw the film Zulu will probably remember Henry Hooke, the hospital orderly who received the Victoria Cross following the 1879 battle at Rorke’s Drift.
Unfortunately, the film’s depiction of Hooke was inaccurate.
Tonight, Paul Barnett will give us the true story of Hooke, who was born and buried in Churcham.
Donations to a retiring collection to cover costs are welcome.
