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?”

Doe's anyone know where this encounter took place and how it came about?

"THE ZULU WAR. Private letters from the Cape give us interesting information, not only of the Integrity of the Prince Imperial, but of his determination to share in the hard life of the common soldier. The prince, it appears, took a leading part in a sharp encounter with the enemy early in May (when, by the way, our native troops bolted at the first shot), and for three successive nights he was in bivouac without a tent, and with only one blanket, which the prince characteristically shared with his servant."

There are various accounts of these
escapades! He was out on Patrol in
Which Buller vc was in command..
they came across some Zulu's in the
distance the P.I. with his hitherto un-
known excitable nature fully roused
went charging after them on his own
frantically waving his sword, Buller was
so incensed at the princes alarming and
reckless behaviour vowed, never to take
him out again!.

The story of the blanket, again, differs
only slightly in the various accounts i
have! it is said he shunned taking a
blanket as ' unmanly ' so in consequence
he spent the nights wide awake stomping
around the campsite loudly singing pat-
riotic songs in an effort to keep warm..his
comrades it is said were not amused.
