|17th February 2005||Medals shown in the film Zulu|
I have been told that some of the medals worn in the film Zulu were incorrect. Apparently they were awarded at a later time. Can anyone confirm this or were they all genuine. Many thanks.

we have been down this route a number of times. Nigel Green (CSgt Bourne) is shown as wearing the Ashantee campaign medal (1874) and the 1902 coronation. Neither of which was awarded to the real CSgt Bourne. His first medals were DCM and the South Africa (1879) Medal.
