Just watched this (the 1939 version) and saw something I'd never seen in a film about the Army before. When the blokes were given the order to 'stand at ease' they held their hands out before them, clasped them and lowered them. Did this used to happen or is it artistic liscence? They had two Colonels as Military advisors so I would imagine that something like it may have happened in the 19th Century. Anyhow, the Dervishes didn't like it up 'em!
