Dorset Toy Soldiers' Heroes of Rorke's Drift Limited Edition Series. The Toy Soldier Company commissioned Dorset to produce this exclusive range of action vignettes. They produced only 12 of each set EXCLUSIVELY for The Toy Soldier Company.
Corporal Schiess, a native of Switzerland, was a member of the Natal Native Police. While recuperating from a leg wound in the hospital at Rorke's Drift, the siege began. Though unable to walk without the aid of a crutch, he hobbled outside when the Zulus broke through the outer British defenses and came to the aid of a fallen comrade, fighting off a number of Zulus with a borrowed Martini-Henry rifle. Alternately rewinding his trailing leg bandage and keeping the Zulus at bay, he was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions. Set includes Schiess, fallen 24th foot soldier and Zulu warrior.
'The Heroes of Rorke's Drift' features the men who won Victoria Crosses for their courage above and beyond the call of duty at the Siege of Rorke's Drift during the Zulu War of 1879. Each vignette features 2 or 3 figures in action, one or more of them named characters in the act of winning his/their V.C.'s. Each figure comes on a separate base. They can be used as in this vignette or as part of a larger scene.
