Stanley Baker as Lieutenant John Chard (left), Charles Robson was the batman to Lt Chard.
A medal awarded to one of the defenders of Rorke's Drift, which was immortalised in the film Zulu, has sold for £132,000 138 years on.
Driver Charles Robson was the batman, or personal servant, to Victoria Cross hero Lieutenant John Chard, who was played by Stanley Baker in the classic 1964 movie.
The duo formed part of the 140-strong British garrison which defied all odds to successfully defend the Rorke's Drift mission station from 4,000 marauding Zulu warriors in 1879.
Robson never left the side of Lt Chard, who was the commanding officer and who organised the epic defences which included piling up mealie bags to form a makeshift wall.
The medal went under the hammer with London auctioneers Dix Noonan Webb today and went for a record £132,000.
