Zului is my favourite film of all time and I must have watched it 50+ times. It is all the more remarkable to consider it is a TRUE story (albeit with poetic licence as pointed out on this site). But from such myths stories of bravery and courage arise

Fantastic web site. I was in SA 2 yrs ago but unfortunately did not have the time to go east and visit. I am going back in 2004 (honeymoon) and I am trying to persuade the wife to give me a day or 2 off to make the pilgrimage.

Regarding the below message: Are we still allowed to be proud of being British? I was recently accussed of being racist at work because of my interest in British history, and the Anglo-Zulu was in partucular, and told to remove the small Union Jack from my desk becuase of "The Offence it causes". Needless to say the Union Jack stayed !!!!

i'd like to say how proud i am for the guys at Rokes Drift, against unbelievalbe odds, they held, fighting shoulder to shoulder without the thought of running, they are heros each n every one at that farm house in Africa, it sums up the pride, respect and spirit of the British Army, well done lads ur appricated more than u'll ever know, it is cos of these guys and a few other battles where our guys did us proud and defied the odds that im proud and honoured to be British.

This site is brilliant! you may be interested to know that i have a famous distant relative by the name of robert jones, who was at rorkes drift and won a vc for his action. About ten years ago my uncle married a Zulu, who was a relative of the chief of the Zulu Inldondlo regiment, who fought at Rorkes drift also!

I served in 1st Battalion S.W.B. When the film came to a local cinema I seem to remember we were paraded as a Battalion to go see it. We all believed it was our Battalion. Later on I discovered that it was actually the Warwicks, but by then, guess what, I had transferred to the Warwicks, or what they had become - 2 RRF.

Here in Ontario we used to have a small group of military model enthusiasts who met monthly. Would you believe one of our group actually fell asleep during a viewing of"Zulu" on TV! Congrats on your page and Season's Greetings from Canada!

From Lakeshore, Ontario, Canada, an excellent site and tribute to those gallant solders, who stood, at Rorke's Drift, against tremendous odds, because they were the only ones there. Today, you only hear negative comments about, the British Colonial Wars, and History. Those, who have not served, in the military, just don't get it!

I too am a committed team member of Rorkes Drift FC - I have the upmost respect for my current compatriots as well for our heroic namesakes.

I am also a member of the auspicious Rorkes Drift football team. The heroes of Rorkes Drift were obviously made of seriously stern stuff -a bit like the members of our football team.
P.S. Can I have a cheap polo shirt please.

I wholeheartedly agree with that Mark fella

Even if some of the details are a tad suspect it is still a grand ,blood stirring yarn ...unless you happen to be a Zulu !!

I have watched the film many times over the years, and and it is a great tribute to the those who lost their lives and to those who servived this battle from the British army and the Zulu nation, let us not forget their memory, and all others who lost there lives in wars.
Excellent web page Keep up the good work.
