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
Mon Mar 31, 2014 2:25 pm by Frank Allewell
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.
 


I thought he should have a thread as well, given his great esteem. He just announced his retirement from acting due to Parkinson's disease. A real tragedy. He was fairly unknown when he did Zulu Dawn, but in my opinion, he was the …

Some of many mistakes

Zulus being 4 Miles
3,000 dead
Zulu trap
Over heat and miss fire
Ammuntion supplies ran out
The zulus could advance easily
The natives running and leaving a gap in the line
Brickhill a soilder
A wounded solider asking brickhill for a lift
Part time force of peasent farmers
only 8 of those left to defend the camp escaped



Cheers

Hi DB.
Brickhill was asked for a ' Lift ' by Band Sgt Gamble ( Basicall still a soldier ! ) so it isnt a mistake . It was indeed a patrol which basically found the army which in turn signals the start of the battle .
Cheers 90th . Salute

Gives a great feeling of the battle, atmosphere etc.
Some one once wrote, 'why let the truth get in the way of a good story."
Nice to see the original settings being used, the trail, Fugitives Drift et.
Well done John good post.

Cheers

Without wishing to be pedantic, Gamble was actually wounded. Some where in the deeper reccesses of my memory Im sure I recall him being seen in the hospital tent.

Could very easily be mistaken though.
Still should keep you busy for a couple of hours looking through the books. :lol:

Cheers Salute
