I was wondering what other members favourite lines are from Zulu and Zulu Dawn. For me it is Colour sgt. Bourne's reply to the boy solider who, in Zulu, asks "Why us?". Colour Sgt. Bourne replies "Because we're here lad, no one else, just us." To me you get the sense that these men are alone but also they are with each other, their mates and will stand together and survive or die together. What do others have as their favs?

Bromhead to Chard who was standing in the river and with his tunic on a tree stump on the bank: " I'll get one of my chaps to clean your kit"
Chard in reply: " No, don't bother"
Bromhead with a smirk ad his fly swat replies, " No bother old boy. Not offering to do it myself "
Short but superb conversation showing the 'class' and attitude of the two characters.

One that stood with me for many a year.....

Chard: "Do you think the Welsh can't do better than that, Owen?
Owen: "Well they've got a very good bass section, mind, but no top tenors, that's for sure."
Sad

On a side note, I have ripped the Zulu chanting from the film audio, if anybody wants a copy  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Zulu Dawn;

CHELMSFORD: Splendid horsemanship. Who are they?

DURNFORD: Sikali Horse, My Lord. Christians all, I know each one by name.

CHELMSFORD: They come well recommended do they?

DURNFORD: My Lord, they rode for me at Bushman's Pass.

My favourite quote wasnt in the movie. When the apartheid police were warning the staff against being intimate with the zulu ladies they mentioned they would be whipped if caught, Stanley Baker replied: " Can I be whipped while doing it?"

The audio was available on an L.P., the music from the film on one side, and the Zulu chants (used in the film) set to music on the other. I bought this aged 18 I think and still have it. Probably worth as much as a medal now!

I must admit I always smile when we read out Psalm 46 in church, though in the film they miss a little bit out:-

9 He maketh wars to cease in all the world: he breaketh the bow, and knappeth the spear in sunder, and burneth the chariots of fire.
10 Be still then, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the heathen, and I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The Lord of hosts is with us: the God of Jacob is our refuge.

Interesting change. Just looked in grandma's 1880s' bible and seen it was 'cutteth'. Somehow 'knap' doesn't quite sound right - knapped flint yes, but a knapped spear, no.

Hi Julian
Your grandmother's Bible is presumably the King James Authorised version of 1611 whereas the Psalms in all editions of the BCP since the first edition of 1549 have been that of Miles Coverdale's translation of the Bilble of 1535.
So the original word was 'Knappeth' (which is a now obsolete word but can mean snaps or breaks) but was then changed to 'Cutteth'
Just different translations.
They probably changed it to snappeth for the film as it didn't sound so archaic and probably sounds better that 'cutteth'
Our 'fictional' Colour Sergeant Bourne who's father was a lay preacher would probably, in my opinion, have used the word knappeth as the BCP was the common service book of the time.(and still is)

Perhaps even more telling than the line you quoted is the silence afterwards from Chelmsford when he says nothing at all.
