Excellent site. Zulu is my favorite movie of all time. I am fascinated by the story of the bravery exhibited.

Very well constructed site. 'ZULU' was the first ever film that I saw at the cinema. Since then I have been interested in the Zulu wars and especially the defence of Rorkes Drift. I remember when I was in 5 Fld Squadron RE, commenorating Rorkes Drift Day, It used to be the day of the Squadron photograpgh. I always wonder if they stil do that?

Great site, very interesting I had a great grandfather who was a member of the 24th foot. My old mum still remembers talking to him when he was an old man in his bed. his last job in life was as a grave digger in Cardiff. I have been to Brecon many years ago, but we think he may have served under another name. I like a lot of other members of the Australia Army have had the movie ZULU shown to us over and over, never get sick of it.
Carry on the good work Taffy's

I agree with Lena's comments. I first saw the movie Zulu while home on leave from the Air Force. I was preparing to go to Taiwan for a one year duty. My mother set me up with a blind date. I took her to the drive-in movie near our house (Niagara Falls, NY). I proceeded to watch the movie and not lay a hand on my date. She told my mother that she thought I was wierd because all I did was watch the movie and not pay any attention to her. Needless to say, I never saw her again but have seen the movie so many times that I know the dialog. People in my office groan whenever they talk about a movie and I tell them that it may be a good movie but it is not as good as "Zulu". I have actually had a Zulu Party where I introduce the uninitiated to the movie.

Great fun and a great movie

I been lucky enough to visit Rourke's Drift. It is a beautiful place and I can imagine the defenders before the action wondering why they should travel all the way to such a place only to die.

There was so little cover for a running Zulu I could only be amazed at their courage in throwing themselves at the walls.

The part of me that is not dying of jealousy over your trip to Africa, is really grateful for this website. When the movie Zulu first came out, I saw it four times in a row. It is still the best movie ever made, and to see photos of all the places is just incredible. Thank you.

I had heard that a remake of the movie "ZULU" was in production? Has any one ever heard anything of this possible rumor? Thanks

I watched "Zulu" on TV last night (about 20th time) and I still have difficulty in
comprehending the tenacity of the British troops at Rorkes Drift.

A very interesting site, where does your information on the fate of the drummer boys come from? I have read this account in "Like Lions They Fought", but assumed it was propaganda of the time.
Having visited the Royal Armoury at Leeds on several occasions, I was privileged on one visit to see a re-enactment of a solider of Rokes Drift. On speaking to him after his performance (he did get a little carried away) I noted that he appeared to be wearing an excellent imitation 24th foot Tunic complete with Sphinx’s on the collar. He advised me that this was a genuine Tunic from the campaign, are you able to confirm this?
