In the film Zulu Dawn, last stages of the battle there is a scene where, Durnford gives up his horse to a sergeant and tells him to, go to the Bishop and tell him my story is done and I was obliged to stay with my regiment. Did this event take place. Did Durnford send a message to the Bishop. And did the messenger get natal.

Little hand. I think its fiction. Just before the death of Durnford.

Durnford tells Kambula, an African soldier, to take his horse, and ride back to Natal with a message: "when you see the Bishop, tell him, that is tell his daughter, I was obliged to remain here with my infantry. Now go! God go with you," Durnford finishes. "I leave God Jesus with you," Kambula says and he rides off.

When we return to Durnford, he notes that another wave of Zulu are heading over the hills and the British army is effectively trapped. He climbs up onto a wagon using it as a platform. He then starts shooting at the Zulus. He takes out one. Then another. One gets close but is cut down by Durnford's bullet. He fires at another but still the Zulus come. A Zulu runs at him with an assegai, but Durnford shoots him down. Durnford lets out another shot at the Zulu horde that are now surrounding his wagon, but the limitation of the revolver is it only holds so many bullets, and he has run out.

He throws the empty weapon in the crowd and picks up a rifle,swinging it wildly at the Zulus, determined not to go out quietly. A Zulu with a rifle takes aim and fires, hitting Durnford in the chest. Durnford falls off the wagon and down a hillside, making a bumpy landing at the bottom. Durnford gasps and wriggles in agony. A Zulu climbs up onto the wagon and throws his assegai with deadly accuracy, into Durnford's chest. Durnford clasps his hand around it, trying to pull it out, but he's far too weak by this point, and he dies.
