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?”

From an unamed Carbineer on the 11th of Febaury 1879.

"You asked if i recognized any of our men who were killed. Well i didn't but some of the other did. They identified troopers Swift, Tarboton (who had his head cut clean off), and the two Jackson's. Swift was the man who had died hard. It seems they killed him with knobkerries. Mackleroy was shot in the side while fighting with the others. He managed to get on his horse and ride half a mile before falling and never being seen again. George Shspstone was shot dead. Moodie turned out and was seen to fire some shots, but Dean must have been killed in his tent."

Melokazulu's interview

A: At the entrance to the camp, where the white people were fighting in a back formation.
