PostSubject: Your favourite line from Zulu or Zulu Dawn   Wed Aug 01, 2018 10:49 pm

I was wondering what other members favourite lines are from Zulu and Zulu Dawn. For me it is Colour sgt. Bourne's reply to the boy solider who, in Zulu, asks "Why us?". Colour Sgt. Bourne replies "Because we're here lad, no one else, just us." To me you get the sense that these men are alone but also they are with each other, their mates and will stand together and survive or die together. What do others have as their favs?

"I'll tell my man to clean your kit" or "It all depends on what you damned English want for it, afterwards"

Bromhead to Chard who was standing in the river and with his tunic on a tree stump on the bank: " I'll get one of my chaps to clean your kit"
Chard in reply: " No, don't bother"
Bromhead with a smirk ad his fly swat replies, " No bother old boy. Not offering to do it myself "
Short but superb conversation showing the 'class' and attitude of the two characters.
