Dickie Owen Played Corporal Schiess (Zulu) who has sadly passed away on Tuesday the 7th April 2015
Fri Apr 10, 2015 11:14 pm by ADMIN
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.

PostSubject: Long service and Good Conduct stripes...   Wed Jan 02, 2013 8:03 am

Hello and Happy New Year 2013 to all and especially a very good health in 2013, this is the most important ...

Long service and Good Conduct stripes were awarded to qualifying privates and lance - corporals ,to a maximun of seven badges,for 2,5,12,18,21 and 26 years' service...

One small question I have in mind to start the year ...

Very well, but to become holder of these Long Service and Good Conduct stripes, it had to have 2,5,12,18,21 or 26 years' service of war or campaign ?

Or you could receive the Long Service and Good Conduct stripes in remaining at the bottom of a barracks of London during 2,5,12,18,21 or 26 years? ...

These awards are for just what they are called - long service and good conduct. It is relative to the length of time in service and are not affected by campaign service etc
