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.

All, i have a short clip of
a moment from Zulu Dawn
which never made it to the
final cut.its the famous..
saving the colours moment.
fictional Pulleine " well fought
gentlemen, its time to save
the colours". fictional Melvill
" but sir my men are still
fighting".

I offer this with absolutely no
opinion on the content visa vie
a heated discussion i had a few
years back.i just think it is quite
a novel little vignette, and i
wish i could of heard the fictional
Pulleines response to the fictional
anguished entreaty of the fictional
Melvill. if any of you can follow this,
including me.lol. cheers xhosa

Thanks for taking the time to post it. No fault of yours but the beginning reminds me a bit of a scene from the last Monty Python movie.

Pulleine: "Well fought, gentleman."
Melvill: "Yes, rather good compared with Cannae"
Coghill: "Superb when you consider Little Big Horn"
etc...
