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?”

This is the problem today. We don’t have people like Smith-Dorrien. All we have is MPs and High Ranking Military personnel worrying about their own pay supplements.


On Monday 20 May 1918

"The fete opened at 3 pm, and after taking a salute from the Christ's Hospital Cadet Corps and inspecting their lines, the general gave what was held to be 'an admirable address'. Among his audience were many of the grandest families from this part of Sussex: a clutch of Godmans from various large houses locally, including Major CRB Godman (4th Royal Sussex Regiment) and Captain JF Godman (Somaliland Camel Corps), Rev EDL and Mrs Harvey from Beedingwood, Mrs Henderson from Sedgwick Park and HA Rigg KC from Wallhurst Manor."

"Smith-Dorrien emphasised the pressing need for money to support the war effort, and said that funds collected that day would go towards 'a hut in Ireland for our splendid navy and to help our war depots which provide bandages etc for wounded soldiers'. The pleasing fact that people kept on donating funds meant that it was the will of the nation to win the war and make it impossible in future for the world to be dominated by a brutal military autocracy."

This is what history is about. Just think when he was a young man he took part in the Battle of Isandlwana 1879, and lived to tell the tail,and we get the chance to see him on film (Alive)

Nice one Littlehand. Idea
