Percy Herbert (31 July 1920 - 6 December 1992) was a English character actor who often played soldiers.
Because he had first hand experience of Japanese p.o.w. camps, he was paid an extra £5.00 per week to act as a consultant on the film The Bridge on the River Kwai in which he played Private Grogan. Herbert was the one who suggested the marching p.o.w.'s whistling "Colonel Bogey" to the Director, David Lean.
