Thats about it! Glad they didn't use it in the film.
Could have done a retake of Durnford standing on the wagon. Focus on his face as he takes in the masses of Zulu's moving towards the camp, then he says what have I done, then shoots himself.
Yes - it was a bit rubbish. They should have done the Younghusband mob's final moments - that would have been dramatic. For me, the battle scenes are great but I would think they might be rather confusing for someone who wasn't familiar with the battle and would be improved with a few more recogmisable focal points linked to characters (eg Y/H as above).
