Zulu Dawn:“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?”

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.

Zulu
Beggin yer pardon sir..... about the soup sir.
Yes what about the soup?
Why that gentleman told me to put it on the fire.
He did?
We have thatched roofs here Bromhead, don't want to make the Zulus a present of fire.
Yes well get on with it theres a good fellow.
And am I to take a rifle to sir'

Zulu Dawn when the artillary changes direction
'No 2 gun cease fire whole section right'

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.]

Another, from Bromhead, "There's something else; I feel ashamed."  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
