Colour Sergeant Bourne, in the classic movie Zulu


  1. Outstanding film...outstanding portrayal of a Colour Sergeant.

  2. Yep - a stellar portrayal by Nigel Green, hard to think of anyone else who did better although others can probably suggest a few.

  3. What has bothered me about that movie is the lack of recoil from the guns.
    400 grains at 1400 fps thump the shoulder.
    I know it was a movie and they were probably just primers, not even blanks being fired.
    Same goes for the revolvers.
    But it still bugs me.
