Zulu–a Quibble

ZULU is a great movie, but possibly not a perfect one. I always thought

that the Welsh soldiers singing *Men of Harlech* in the final encounter

would, at that point in history, much more likely have been singing it in

actual Welsh. Am I wrong?

(It’s very moving, anyway, even sung in English. But compare the scene in

John Ford’s HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY where the miners come back from the pit

disaster singing John Hughes’ magnificent *Cwm Rhondda* in Welsh.)
