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?”

Hello and Happy New Year 2013 to all and a very good health Especially in 2013, this is the MOST important ...

Long Service and Good Conduct stripes Were Awarded to qualifying privates and lance - corporals, to a maximun of seven badges, for 2,5,12,18,21 and 26 years' service ...

A Isandhlwana or in another battle of the zulu war , there were guys with 26 years of service, which were only privates or lance - corporals !???

Cheers

Pascal
