My favorite trivia bit from "Zulu" is that Commissary Major James Langley Dalton (one of the VC recipients) is portrayed as a fussy and effeminate little fellow who was decorated for continuing to pass out ammunition after being seriously wounded. In reality, he was a retired color sergeant from one of the old line infantry regiments who took the commissary job because his farm in Natal was failing, and he was the veteran soldier whose advice Lieutenants Chard and Bromhead relied on in organizing the defense and building the "mealie bag" fortifications.
