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?”

Apparently someone called Sergant-Major Sharpe recalled that


Out of a thousand there were 6 officers, 14 non-commissioned officers, and 450 natives cut to pieces, including Colonel Durnford, who fought with his one arm like a true British officer. The last words he said, after pausing for a few seconds were -"Now men, this is our last escape: death or glory. God help us." He then gave the word, "Charge;" but before he got through the (next word unclear) a bullet entered his breast,..


Who was he ??

Was he even at Isandlwana??



Cheers
