Zulu.Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

No Hook was not a Cook. He was making tea for the sick on that day, it was his turn. They use to take it in turns. Hook was not a cook by trade.

Hi
At Rorke's Drift, there is no military cook for the "B" company, the character played by Kerry Jordan in the film Zulu has never existed.

Cheers

Thanks Chris, lots of fun.
I got the eyebrow one wrong - still can't rememebr the name of that hill!
The questions were pretty easy I thought due to the fact these were celebrities, not experts in their field.
They might have phrased the Hook question better, such as, "what duty was Henry Hook performing..." but cook is obviously the answer they were after.

Hi Tasker,

Yeah it was a bit of fun, not too taxing really, and I got the same question wrong..... as for the Hook issue, I am sure that Hook himself had said that he was on cooking duty that day, so yeah the answer they were looking for was a cook.... that was the answer I gave anyway.....

A wonderful, inspirational, classic British made film is Zulu.
No one has done more than Stanley Baker to hook people into the subject of the AZW, yet on here, the film is often belittled pedantically, for a few small artistic liberties, such as the battle happening in the hours of daylight, and not in the dark. Could you imagine a film shot entirely in the dark?!?!
Who cares. Take it as it is - one of the best films of all time.
Enjoy the forum Chris, and keep enjoying Zulu!
