It was the launch and first night of Chapter’s Stanley Baker film season – a run of classics celebrating the tough guy from the Rhondda. I was there to give an illustrated talk after which Zulu would be screened.
Then I was told the Ferndale boys were there. What’s more, they were the surviving members of Stanley’s home-town choir who sang ‘Men of Harlech’ for the movie.
Like so many blokes of my age I just adore Zulu. So to meet these guys – every one of them a gent – was just immense. You can see it in my face.
What a thrill. And Zulu on the big screen? Just the best.
Well done to all. As it says in the song; “Welshmen never yield”. Chuffed to bits to be a part of this.
