| A film of its time
A rare film set in the Cyprus Emergency with some excellent character acting. Sensitive acting by Tom Courtney but also those playing the crusties.

Note that National Service had just ended. The swinging sixties had not yet begun.

Eric Thompson who plays the adjutant went on to write and narrate the magic roundabout.

If you liked this for its take on the moral dilemmas of soldiering you could try "Tunes of Glory" although that is in colour and set in Scotland starring Alec Guiness. Another gem in my view is "Guns at Batasi" starring Richard Atteborough.
