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?”

"On film he played Private 593 Jones in Zulu (1964), with Stanley Baker and Michael Caine, bravely keeping the hordes at bay in the battle of Rorke’s Drift. In the 1972 film of Under Milk Wood, starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, he played Mr Pritchard, a failed bookmaker who committed suicide “ironically” by ingesting disinfectant – one of the two late husbands of Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard. On stage in the same play he took the roles of Mr Ogmore, Captain Cat and the Reverend Eli Jenkins.
The son of a railway guard, Richard Davies was born on January 25 1926 at Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan. After leaving school aged 14, he followed his elder brother Ron down the pits. He had always enjoyed drama at school, however, and soon left to pursue a career in acting. Moving to London, he joined the Pilgrim Players (which also nurtured the talents of Richard Burton and Anthony Hopkins) and began his career in rep.
While working in a theatre in Colwyn Bay, he married Beryl, the daughter of his landlady, with whom he had a son. Called up for military service during the war, he was sent to train for the Burma Military Police, but was rescued by the captain of the Combined Services Entertainment Unit, and spent the rest of the war entertaining the troops.
Returning to London, he appeared on stage in Carrington VC, toured Africa with the Old Vic in 1952 and appeared in the supernatural film drama The Night my Number Came Up (1955) with Michael Redgrave.
From the 1960s onwards he enjoyed a steady flow of television work, taking semi-regular roles as the slimy police informant Sloan in Z-Cars (1962-65) and as the foundry worker Idris Hopkins in Coronation Street (1974-1975)."

Pte. Robert Jones: "Tis a Welsh regiment, man! Though there are some foreigners from England in it , mind. I am Jones from Bwlchgwyn, he is Jones from Builth Wells, and there are four more Joneses in C Company! Confusing, isn't it, Dutchy?"

One for you Martin!!!!

Yes, ok John, but anyone with any knowledege regarding RD, knows that Pte Robert Jones did not come from Bwlchgwyn, and nor was he welsh.

He came from Monmouth, which at that time was part of England, meaning that Pte Robert Jones was an Englishman and not welsh, so it is very highly unlikely that he would be calling himself a foreigner from England, and therefor anyone with an ounce of sense would also know that Pte Robert Jones did not even say the words you quote in your post, they were added to the anti English, chip on both shoulders Baker's almost fictional film, to give it even more false welshness to make the gullible general public believe that the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment was a welsh outfit when it most certainly was NOT.

Both the films should be remade, and remade in proper order, ie, zulu dawn first then zulu, and this time give the general public the true facts about the regiment and its men, rather than all the licence and false welshness that Baker deliberately added to make the general public believe that it was an all welsh affair (with a few foreigners from England), when in actual fact, nothing could be further from the truth.

It's about time that Baker's welsh myth was well and truly busted, and the honour returned to the rightful regiment, the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment and its mainly Englishmen, and stop the welsh stealing the glory for something that they only played a minor roll in, yet glorify themselves for something that the English did.

And while we are on the subject, did you know that of all the predecessor regiments that make up todays RW, NONE of them are actually welsh, they are all ENGLISH,

Baker's welsh myth may well outlive me, but while I am still around I will defend the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment and its Englishmen and its glorious English history, why should the welsh steal its battle honours and its glory and get away with it scott free? And if the UK ever does break up and the countries go their separate ways, then I would demand that England take back her regiments from foreign land, that would bring the old 24th back to its rightful homeland of England, and also the old 23rd, 41st and 69th would also be returned to their native homeland of England, meaning that the welsh would have to start raising their own regiments (for a change), rather than pinching ones raised in England and pretending that they are theirs.
