Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Frank,

I can’t find an exact match to those numbers.

Those ending in 82 who were killed in action at iSandlwana were:
1882 Acting Bombardier James Aylett.
1082 Gunner John Connelly.
2182 Gunner William Roscoe. (Appears in Medal Roll incorrectly as 2183.)
3482 Gunner Joseph Smythe.
