I found the use of the Brit holding up his Martin Henry especially ingenious since the pose is next to useless in any other context.

Very good work, a scene full of motion and emotion!

Hey Alex,

Great work I really liked this entry of yours, if only I didn't have to compete against you I would have voted for this :oops:

A lot of drama can be put into small scenes such as this one and it reminds me a lot about this part in the movie Zulu. Well done and best wishes :thumbup:
