Albert Edward Pryke Briggs, MBE, was born on 1st March 1923 in Redcar, North Riding of Yorkshire. Joining the Royal Navy in 1938 at the age of 15, Ted completed his initial training on the HMS Ganges. 16 months later he was assigned to the HMS Hood, fulfilling a childhood dream of his. On July 20th 1939, Ted joined the ships company. A little over a month later, Britain went to war with Germany. During the time preceding the epic battle with the Bismarck, the Hood was busy patrolling the Atlantic and escorting various ships. Ted was aboard the Hood when she fell to Bismarck on 24th May 1941. After his survivors leave ended in June, Ted was posted to the HMS Mercury. The remainder of the War found Ted being posted to various other ships of the Royal Navy. Ted remained in the navy after the war and retired on February 2 . 1973. Sadly, Ted Briggs died 4th October 2008, aged 85.

 The Battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879 was the first major encounter in the Anglo-Zulu War between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom. Eleven days after the British commenced their invasion of Zululand in South Africa, a Zulu force of some 10,000-12,000 warriors attacked a portion of the British main column consisting of about 1,800 British, colonial and native troops and perhaps 400 civilians. The Zulus were equipped mainly with the traditional Assegai iron spears and cow-hide shields, but also had a number of muskets and old rifles though they were not formally trained in their use. The British and colonial troops were armed with the state-of-the-art Martini-Henry breech-loading rifle and two 7 pounder artillery pieces as well as a rocket battery. Despite a vast disadvantage in weapons technology, the numerically superior Zulus ultimately overwhelmed the poorly led and badly deployed British, killing over 1,300 troops, including all those out on the forward firing line. The Zulu army suffered around 350 killed, and up to several hundred wounded. The battle was a crushing victory for the Zulus and caused the abandonment of the first British invasion of Zululand.
