ZULU WAR 1879 Discussion & Reference Forum ( A Small Victorian War in 1879)

From Edward Evans of Llawrglyn, near Llanidloes who escaped from Isandula to his mother and brother. You know nothing of the horrors of war and if I was to write from now till Christmas, I could never explain half what I have seen or how I was saved.

I heard 'em first.
I'll get you a medal for modesty, Private Williams, would you like that?
Pte. Williams: You never would, Colour Sergeant, a medal? :lol!:

i think i read somewhere that there was an alternative scene which was not used where Bob Hoskins kills (shoots?) pte Williiams so that he willl not be killed by the Zulu - anyone else heard this or even seen it ?

I have not heard that. But I'm glad they didn’t use it. I think they way they died together was quite apt.

hi gary.
Congrats on regaining the ashes, i havent heard of SGT WILLIAMS shooting PVT WILLIAMS , but i do have the final
shooting script of zulu dawn , which is a little different to the movie. so here it is.

SGT WILLIAMS and PVT WILLIAMS back -to- back see the danger to the guns, both have their bayonets fixed.
CLR-SGT WILLIAMS " save the guns ..... SAVE THE GUNS "

The 2 williams"s and several redcoats rush to the stalled guns. ZULUS converge, whilst the men work desperately to
free the wheels.
PVT WILLIAMS , to his own surprise , shoots a zulu , CLR SGT WILLIAMS bayonets another . Two zulus simultaneously
asseagai the SGT , who falls mortally wounded, they run forward to get at the guns. PVT .WILLIAMS leans over the SGT,
tries to pick him up. PVT WILLIAMS says " come on sarn"t . I'll help you ". even in death the SGT recognises the danger.
The SGT says weakly " no .....no.......please dont. But the PVT wont be deterred. He gets the SGT to his feet. PVT WILLIAMS
then says " dont worry , sarn"t, i"ll take care of everything. Then a single assegai penetrates them both ....and they die together.

cheers 90th.

hi gary.
Poor ricky is the first captain in 100 yrs to loose the ashes TWICE , last person to do that was poor Billy Murdoch.
I dont think we shot him :lol!: . But he may have been given the BULLET , so to speak . :lol!:
Sorry pete , just a tad off topic !!.
cheers 90th :)

Did you Know !!!!

Bob Hoskins got infected by a worm while filming Zulu Dawn.

John Hurt was cast in Zulu Dawn but had to be replaced after an incident with airport staff over his passport.
