The Film Zulu was one of the first films I ever saw at the cinema, the photography and music were outstanding for the time.
I didn't get into the history until about 8 years ago when I started reading up on it.

Hi springy.

I got interested in the AZW as a child listening to my grandad talking about a relative who fought at RD. I remember him speaking of the regiment being called the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment, however, a number of years later in 1964, I went to see a new film called 'Zulu' at the local cinema (now long gone), and I was surprised that the regiment was portrayed as being welsh and being called the swb. This of course got me wondering if my grandad had got something wrong (which would have been very unusual for him), but some research proved that he was correct, and that it was the film that was just pretending that it was a welsh regiment with mostly welshmen in it, when in actual fact the majority of the men were indeed English, and the regiment had an English county title which my grandad correctly said was called the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment.

Hope this helps springy mate.

That makes me curious as to whether you answered by choosing ZULU or a book after 1985? The only reason I ask is that the same was true of me and I decided to go with the book answer.

I answered the Film but you are right it was the book of the same name that fuelled my interest.

Hi. Been interested like many when I went to see the film back in '64 at the local premier on at the ABC. Always made my mind up to see what I could one day so in 96 travelled to SA and lucky enough to stay with Dave and Nicky Rattray. Spent three evenings sitting on his verandah, lit only with an oil lamp watching the moon come up over 'The sphinx', whilst he regailed with tales of the battle and Fugitives Drift. Probably one of the most memorable times of my whole life. He was a most special person who is sadly missed and were lucky enough to call him 'friend!'.

Thanks for posting the pics. I can recall the view but when I was there with Dave there was no patio, just his verandah looking towards the east into the Buffalo Valley. He only had a few straw roofed circular huts in which guests could stay and everyone ate in the lodge main room. The approach to the lodge was a nightmare along a bumpy rutted dirt road that became a quagmire after the slightest rainfall. Nevertheless just to stand and marvel into the star lit inky blackness was a dream come true and a treasured memory.

"Other" for me. A Children's Illustrated History of Britain had that wonderful picture of the Zulus' charge at Khambula when I was about 8-9 (late-1950s) and then my Grammar School history teacher, Harry Flood, had something of an obsession with Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift. And THEN there was Michael Caine...

It has indeed Pete, With over 800 views I would have liked to get the votes a touch higher, but yes its confirmed the thoughts that weve probably all held. Well done Sir Stanley Baker we do indeed owe you a debt of gratitude. And yes Pete the reason behind it as we discussed has moved forward a step............... long ladder to still climb though.

Thanks again.
