THE VICTORIA CROSS
 
OF
 
CORPORAL “FRIEDERICH” SCHIESS
 
(Cpl. Ferdinand Christian Schiess)
 
Compiled by
 
Werner Schiess
 
Let me hasten to say, Corporal Friederich Schiess is not part of our Schiess ancestry.   
Nevertheless I thought it is a good story to tell how Friederich helped the British  
Natal Native Contingent to heroically defeat 4000 Zulu Warriors at Rorke’s Drift   
in 1879.  
He is the only Swiss to ever receive the Victoria Cross.  
The pictures attached on the last pages are from the 1963 ZULU film,  
 starring Michael Caine.
