Calling all sappers - once in a lifetime opportunity. Zulu!

Discussion in 'Sappers' started by BFBS, May 5, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. There must be some Zulu fans out there with you sappers...

    We have a Zulu film poster signed by Sir Michael Caine for auction in aid of the BFBS Big Salute, proceeds to Blesma, Combat Stress, Headley Court, St Dunstan's and Veterans Aid.

    Zulu was voted Forces Favourite War Film in a BFBS poll late last year, and in response, Sir Michael Caine said:

    "My thanks to British Forces. My thoughts and best wishes are always with you because I was, and always will be, one of you."

    So when we contacted him again about the Big Salute, BFBS's new annual Forces fundraiser, he gave us a signed Zulu poster to auction.

    Go to and click on auction.

    While you're there, check out the other auction items - auction close at noon BST on Sunday 11th May.

  2. Rorke's Drift, South Africa the Zulus come to call
    'British Lays down your guns, we're gonna kill you all'
    First came the laughter, then there came a cheer
    We'll Fight and not surrender, we're ROYAL ENGINEERS!!!
  3. I take it you'll be bidding then, NT?

  4. I'll let someone else buy it, besides, he played a Welsh infantry officer not a Royal Engineer.
  5. As you know, in real life he was a fusilier.

    Oops, was that a surreptitious bump... :oops:
  6. too rich for my blood, sorry
  7. I know, I really fancy it, too...

    The devil keeps telling me it's a unique opportunity, might never come again...

    Thanks for the bump anyway.

    Tell any rich friends....

    A little tricky to get Stanley Baker to sign one since he died 20 odd years ago.
  9. I'm sure John Cleese would be a good substitute. :)
