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?”

“The Shanghai Mercury reports the tragic death at that place, on 3rd July, of Lieutenant Arthur G. Cawston, of H.M.S. Penguin. He was discovered lying in his berth with his brains blown out. The finding of the Naval Court of Inquiry was that the deceased shot himself whilst suffering from temporary insanity. He was quite a young officer, and a general favourite with his shipmates. Little or nothing transpired as to the causes which led him to take his life, except that it was shown that for some time previously he had been in a very depressed and despondent.”
(From Northern Territory Times and Gazette, Friday 12 August 1892)

Arthur George Cawston was a 15 year old Midshipman on HMS Boadicea during the Zulu War. He did not serve with the ship’s naval brigade and thus was entitled to the SAGS Medal, no clasp. (Confirmed on Medal Roll.)
