Talking of Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliff will be appearing in a film called My Son Jack based on Kipling's son. (probably mentioned before ).

They are shooting in Ireland and are in the middle of pre-production as we speak. I know the military advisor on the film who was taking them through some drill last weekend, complete with his first world war uniform. I asked him if he said something along the lines of "Get off my square, you horrible little wizard".

If you look at the date of Pte Harry Potter's death as mentioned on the web link...= 22nd July 1939, and the recent JK Rowling book released date 21st July 2007.....or is this just a coincidence?
