Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

If you was given the chance to select one of the Battle's that took place during the Anglo Zulu War, that could be made into a film, Which battle would you choose.

Not a battle, just an ambush, I'd like to see a decent film about the death of the Prince Imperial.

Hi Chard. For me it would be the "The Battle of Hlobane" the only problem I could see, is the reconstruction of the retreat down the mountain.

Young Mossop. Played by Daniel Radcliffe.

Yeah, Hlobane for me as well!!! As long as it could be portrayed pretty accurately, unlike Zulu or Zulu Dawn!!!!!

Ulundi. What a battle scene that would make, the forming of the square. The Gatling guns and the charging of the lancers. Could almost be a scene from Waterloo. Idea

Not a Battle. But I would loved to see a film based on the journey of Bertram Mitford after the war. He has already wrote the script, read his book and you will know what I mean.

Hi all.
Would be great to see a movie on Hlobane but I'm with SD . A movie on Mitfords trip would be very , very good as
anyone who has read his book would certainly agree .
cheers 90th.

The only problem with Ulundi is that the battle didn't last that long! The Intombe River ambush could be quite interesting to film, again it would be quite short though.

Hi Littlehand .
That is the wrong book , the title is ' Through The Zulu Country ' , Mr Greaves if you have the time read it as I'm sure you
will enjoy it . It's basically written by Mitford maybe a year or two after the war and he visits the places and talks to those who took part
mainly from the zulu side of things . Well written it seems like your there with him ! .
Cheers 90th.
