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?”

Does anyone know the name of Durnfords Orderly??

I have this

Harry Davies caught his last glimpse of his commanding officer that day . Durnford was out near the firing line , an isolated and deeply forlorn figure , and ' his mounted orderly was standing before him with a drawn sword and the zulus all around '


Cheers

Cpl N.Mansfield is understood to have been detached from 7th Company RE to act as Col Durnfords orderly and wagon driver.

I'm sure I read somewhere that he was Durnford Batman. And that he would never have had a sword with him. Of course he could have found one up.
