PostSubject: Sgt in the Donga   Sgt in the Donga EmptySat Sep 19, 2009 3:13 pm

Hi i have just watch Zulu Dawn again.

And I was hopeing someone could tell me who the Sgt was portraying in Zulu Dawn.

Th Sgt was retreating through a donga with some troops and, Shouting for them to take the high ground. The last we saw off him, he was using his rifle as a club, but was over-whelmed and killed.

PostSubject: sgt in the donga   Sgt in the Donga EmptySun Sep 20, 2009 8:32 am

hi littlehand.
I think that is what"s called ARTISTIC license, something to add drama to the movie, as far as im aware no troops were caught
in the dongas in front of camp, and only Durnfords were actually in the dongas as far as im aware , and they left there and retreated
back to camp when they started to run low on ammunition.
cheers 90th.

Hi
Just a quick thought, could he and his men be portraying the remains of the rocket battery? Yes it still is Artistic License as it didnt really happen as far as im aware.

thanks joe

Hi
I was just watching the scene on youtube again and it looks like the sergeant is actually a corpral as there is only 2 chevrons on his arm.

thanks joe
