Colour Sergeant Bourne by jollyjack Colour Sergeant Bourne by jollyjack
Character from the classic film Zulu ([link])
Just because you’re surrounded, utterly outnumbered, dying of thirst and low on ammo, it doesn’t mean you can neglect your uniform. Now; do that tunic up!

Fun fact: Colour Sergeant Bourne was the longest-living of all the soldiers who participated at Rourke's Drift - he lived to the age of 91 and died on VE Day, 1945! (I guess he was determined to see Mother England prevail in TWO World Wars before he died!)

Even though the actual Colour Sergeant Bourne was only twenty-four and the movie was mostly inaccurate,it's still one of my favorites and love the likeness.Now be a good gentleman and step away from the door.

Didn't get the VC.  Standards were higher for Colour Sergeants.

Colour Sgt Bourne is my favorite character from "Zulu". He embodies the unflappable veteran NCO's who have always been the backbone of the British Army.

VERY good likeness. Loved the movie, love the artwork. Now another classic, "Please, sir, I want some more."
