        Talking of Arnhem and the film A Bridge too Far and resemblances, I’m amazed how many actors in that film look a lot like the person they’re portraying. A lot more than is usually the case with actors portraying real people.

        I may have mixed up those two actors as well.

        I've also noticed the facial similarities in A Bridge Too Far as well.

        If you want a good read on the Paras, I can recommend Men of the Red Beret. Practically a film in every chapter.

          I also like the filmThe Red Beret (1953) starring Alan Ladd.

          That follows the career in the Paras of John Frost (called Major Snow in the film). Taking him through the raid on Bruneval & the attack he led on the airfield in North Africa.

          Frost was played by Anthony Hopkins in A Bridge Too Far where he led the few troops who actually got to the bridge at Arnhem. But he gets his legs damaged by a mortar bomb & was taken prisoner.

          Frost’s a bit of a personal hero of mine. He wrote two autobiographies: A Drop Too Many and Nearly There

                  Nothing like either of them to my eyes. Although they're all female. But that's the only similarity

                      If you have nothing to say... then say nothing

                      I sometimes go for days without making a post

                        There is certainly a resemblance to Davina in that picture Alec.

                          Sorry, but to my eyes she looks nothing like Carol Vorderman and even less like Davina McCall.
                          Same number of eyes though, I'll go that far.
                          Meanwhile, I do think that Carol Vorderman has a look of Celia Johnson
