Crimean War October 1954. A real historical line uttered by and delivered with dramatic panache by a certain Cap't Louis Nolan when the commander of the light brigade, Lord Lucan queried Nolan upon receipt of orders to attack Russian positions, Lucan asked "'Attack, Sir! Attack What? What Guns, Sir? Where and What to do? An exasperated Nolan who didn't think much of Lucan as an officer or a combat leader.......replies
There my Lord! 'There is your enemy! There are your guns!
The true to life scene was reenacted in the 1968 classic The Charge of the Light Brigade, with the late British actor David Hemmings as the ill fated Nolan (Nolan and Aide de Camp to one Brigadier General Airey, a QMG, who decided to join in on the Charge, is Killed early into it by artillery shot)
