The horrors of Falklands visit me daily: Goose Green hero pens £10m movie

A NEW £10million movie about the Battle of Goose Green is being made and
 its writer has the ideal qualification – he had a starring role in the
 original.

Former Para Nigel Ely led his company’s charge in the bloody Falklands War
 campaign which was won against all odds.

The 56-year-old, whose movie will mark next year’s 35th anniversary of the
 war, said: “As I wrote, I was right back there, hearing the sounds, sensing
 the smells, seeing the guys either side of me.

“It was quite easy for me to write the dialogue and scenes. I see them
 visually in my mind all the time.

“They come and visit me all the time, mostly every day. They don’t go away.”

"The most important qualification of a soldier is fortitude under fatigue and privation. Courage is only second; hardship, poverty and want are the best school for a soldier." Napoleon
