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.

Kerry Jordan was an actor, known for Zulu (1964), Mister Kingstreet's War (1971) and Dog Squad (1973). He died in 1994 in South Africa.

"Kerry Jordan was a popular stage, television and radio actor in South Africa. Like a good number of his colleagues acting in South African radio in the early Seventies, Kerry was British and had made his mark there on stage and in film and television before relocating.
Early roles in Britain included The Flying Scot, a 1957 train robbery film and in the television series, Private Investigator (BBC, 1959), in a two-part story entitled The Flight Captain. Between 1960-61, Kerry played a regular role as Mr. Macintosh in Glencannon, a comedy series concerning the exploits of a chief engineer working on a tramp steamer. This series was a British/American co-production transmitted in Britain on ITV.
Kerry Jordan appears to have moved to South Africa in 1964, his last British credit being the BBC Francis Durbridge thriller Melissa, a six-part serial broadcast in April and May of that year. That same year, in South Africa, Kerry won a role in the high profile Michael Caine star vehicle, Zulu, playing the Company Cook. The film also featured Avengers adaptor-director, Dennis Folbigge.
Further film roles followed in South Africa, with Kerry playing Colonel Anstruther in Majuba (1968) and participating in Mr. Kingstreet's War (1971), The Winners (1974, with Tony Jay and Clive Scott) and Heroes Die Hard, a hard-hitting drama from 1978. His last listed film appearance was in Safari 3000 (1982), where he appeared with Avengers alumni Hugh Rouse and Anthony Fridjhon.
In addition to his film work, Kerry Jordan also enjoyed success on television, radio and the stage in South Africa. In the 1980s, his television roles included the successful mini-series, Shaka Zulu (1986), in which he portrayed the Reverend Bellow, and Just Nuisance RN, an SABC series from 1989, where he appeared as a Royal Navy Admiral. His final television credit before his death was in Where Angels Tread, a 1994 tele-movie about the early days of aviation, appearing alongside Diane Appleby, Gillian Garlick and, again, Clive Scott.
Kerry's radio work in South Africa was extensive. He was often heard on Lux Radio Theatre, Tuesday Theatre and even featured in the occasional episode of the popular thriller series, No Place to Hide. His best remembered radio work is undoubtedly his part in The Stories of Sherlock Holmes (1979-1985, Springbok Radio), in which he took the role of Dr. Watson, alongside Graham Armitage's Holmes. On the English Service, he was heard in many editions of Radio Theatre and his last performance on the English Service was in 1989 in the play, The Stinger.

SaS1, very interesting, thank you.


Here is a list of a number of notable films made in SA, majuba is there if you scroll down.
It's of interest to note, Jack Hawkins of 'ZULU' fame starred in a film called 'The adventurers' in 1951 which was part filmed on the exact location of the film 'ZULU'


I'll have a nose around and see if I can find a clip from 'Majuba', if I find it I'll post it.
