Very good film. Not shown too often though. If I remember rightly, I think I watched it on YouTube once. That is before the inevitable "copyright infringement" flag went up.

'The Wild Geese' (1978) Actor Ian Yule was actually a former soldier and served under Major Mike Hoare in the Congo. Actually a pretty good film on the whole and filmed mainly in South Africa.

I remember watching this on VHS some time in the 80s. Having said that, I remember NOTHING about the film. Thanks for reminding me it.

Just watched the end of the series 'Six' on the History channel. Good show, seems there will be a series two.

About a British Mercenary unit in Africa, full of big time British film stars (Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Roger Moore, Stewart Granger) plus the sons of Alan Ladd and Sir Stanley Baker. Hardy Kruger and assorted character actors, features the SLR Rifle.

Major 'Mad Mike' Hoare an actual mercenary commander from the Congo (who saved a lot of lives back then) was an advisor on the film. Good one for anyone who remembers the Elengeni hotel, Durban, or Magoo's Bar, back in the day. Bayete.

I ended up with a one bedroom flat on North Beach that you could, just about, see the sea from in the Kitchen. Lmao.

Pretty Village, Pretty Flame (1996) - about the War in Bosnia. Follows a squad of Serb soldiers who torch a Muslim village but are then trapped in a tunnel with little hope of rescue. This gives us the opportunity to learn their life stories as they slowly go crazy from thirst and isolation.

Dark and full of characteristic Balkan black humour, I consider it one of the best movies from ex-Yugoslavia in general. The English subtitles on the version I watched are pretty good, too.

I know I'm off-topic with this movie but I just had to post it:

I wonder if I set infantry toughness to the lowest possible value, would the grenades be as lethal?
