Dickie Owen Played Corporal Schiess (Zulu) who has sadly passed away on Tuesday the 7th April 2015

Very sad news - my great friend and Zulu actor Dickie Owen passed away on Tuesday night - I have just spoken to his carer who confirmed it. Ironic really - when I spoke to Dickie on Tuesday at lunchtime to tell him I was forwarding fan mail to him, he said he was feeling absolutely fine (and he sounded it). He was a lovely man, very humble, and was really surprised at the amount of people who queued to meet him at our Hammer day signing in November in Westminster - we met fans from all over …

Sir Reginald Coupland

Sir Reginald Coupland in his book: 'Zulu Battle Piece.' Written in 1940 there are a number of photographs. Does anyone know if these photos are still around? In the book they are not that clear and it would of immense value to get digital copies.
JY / Isandula, any ideas?

Bob Hoskins played C.S.M. Williams. Zulu Dawn.

On 22 January and 23 January 1879 at Rorke's Drift, Natal, South Africa, Corporal Allan and another man (Frederick Hitch) kept communication with the hospital open, despite being severely wounded. Their determined conduct enabled the patients to be withdrawn from the hospital, and when incapacitated by their wounds from fighting, they continued, as soon as their wounds were dressed, to serve out ammunition to their comrades during the night.

He later achieved the rank of sergeant for the second time.
