Aren't adding pics to guess at in the wrong thread with this one?
The soldier on picture, it's the target of the quote....that we are looking for, and is better don't give his name.
Certainly, I've played backwards.

Ok, it should be Private Fed Hitch, B co., 2nd Btn, 24th Foot played by David Kernan.

The quotes I can think of are:

Colour Sergeant Bourne: Hitch... Hitch, I saw you. You're alive.

Pvt. Fred Hitch: I am? Oh, thanks very much.

or

Cpl. William Allen: Heave! Put a bit more weight on that rope, you men!

Pvt. John Williams: He's even got a voice like a corporal!

Pvt. Fred Hitch: Yeah, sort of like a female hippopotamus in labor.

and

(after being shot in the wounded) "Can I undo me tunic now?"

Ouch, Not Sorry !
It's Pvt. Fred Hitch, but the "quote" related is not among these.

Historic info about Pvt. Fred Hitch.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Hitch

I scanned through Zulu and couldn't match up the picture you have to anything in the film. I'll have to take another look.

Here's one:

Admiral: "All battles are fought by scared men who'd rather be someplace else."

Aide: "Does that include admirals?"

Admiral: "Yes."

Mine is not a game. I need your help :)

I wonder about the name of WWII movie which I watch on TV maybe 10-15 years before. I need to find this movie for only a scene actually. And I remember only details about this scene.

There is a party and there are a few German soldiers (maybe a few civilians too) on the balcony and drinking. Meanwhile appears some explosions in dark. It's obviously artillery fires of the opposing forces on the near town. It's close to the end of the war. But Germans seem not disturbed and watching these explosions.

Could you guess the name of this movie?

Yep, that's it, in all its B&W practical effects glory.

Good quote, though. And focused (more or less) on the Navy in a general sense, as opposed to the fast carriers, submarines, etc.

Your turn.
