Thank you all for your comments. Pieter, if I suggeted that the movie was made by Hollywood,then, of course, I was mistaken. It was an Australian masterpiece. I am a bit concerned with your distinction between commandoes and terrorists. I understand that the Boer commandoes did not, as I understand it, target noncombatants. This is an important distinction. Nonetheless, if an Irish Republican Army person kills a British officer in Londonderry, is he not a terrorist? If you have a case to make that the commandoes were not terrorist, I respectfully request that you make that case, as I respect your opinion. Mark
