PostSubject: ANGLO-ZULU WAR WEEKEND - BRECON 20-21 April 2013   Thu Apr 04, 2013 12:05 pm

Hi Everyone

Well, we've firmed up the details for what will essentially be a low-key Anglo-Zulu War weekend in Brecon

SATURDAY 20th April 2013

At 0930hrs the 1879 Group will be at LLantarnum Church (near Cwmbran) for the ceremony to unveil a new headstone over the grave of John Williams VC.

Following that, the Group will be present in the Regimental Museum in Brecon (from about mid-day).

SUNDAY 21 April 2013

At 10.30 Dr Jay Pinto will be showing the black and white documentary "The Making of Zulu", followed by a 16mm 5 reel edition of "Zulu" itself.

The 1879 Group will be present for most of the day in the Museum.

Admission to the Museum will be £5 per day, with no extra charges for viewing the films.

If anyone has any questions, let me know.

Old Historian 2:
"The Making of Zulu" is about 30 minutes long I believe. Those of you who have seen it will know what a fascinating piece of film it is.

Dave:
I've just checked, there is hardly any accommodation still available in Brecon for that weekend. If you are still keen on coming, I would suggest you try the Brecon Tourist Information Centre - 01874 622485 - they may be able to find the odd vacancy or two. Good luck

Hope to see some of you on the Sunday. Please seek me out and make yourself known.

Bill, is this the only AZW weekend going to be held at Brecon this year, or are there other events planned later on?

Hi spelk

It will be the only one in Brecon this year. We normally aim for one every two years, and we did a "big one" last year (2012). This one was added in due to the John Williams VC headstone rededication and Dr Jay Pinto's willingness to show the "making of Zulu" film. We will probably do something in the Spring of 2014 before WW1 takes over the Media. We try and avoid January, as Brecon is normally under snow !!!

Anything special you'd like us to focus on ?

Ah no, I'm still kicking myself for missing out on last years event, that sounded absolutely fantastic. I can't really make this April's one neither... but I hope to make one!
