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?”

Hi LH.

Great list mate, especially the one for the 24th (I knew I was right). :lol:



Hi 90th.

Yes, Custer liked that tune.

The name 'Garryowen' means 'Eoghan's Garden''.

It was also the march of a few other regiments, the 5th Lancers, the 50th (Queen's Own), The 87th, to name but a few. Apparently, it was a very popular tune during the Crimean War.

An old army friend of mine gave his son the double barrelled Christian names of Gary and Owen, he liked the tune that much, ha ha.

Cheers. Salute

Hi Chard.

Was quite busy outdoors earlier today, but the rain came and I had to go in, so I did get to watch the back part of it, it was the Coldstream Guards.
