For his heroism in an Anglo-Zulu War initiative known as the Battle of Rorke's Drift, Bromhead was awarded the British Army's prestigious Victoria Cross.
After attending England's Magnus Grammar School and subsequently becoming a military lieutenant, he served in the Ninth Cape Frontier War.
Following his Service in the Third Anglo-Burmese War, he contracted typhoid fever and died in India at the age of forty-five.
Renowned screen actor Michael Caine rose to prominence after unflatteringly portraying Bromhead in the 1960s movie Zulu.
