    Hi there
    Laurence Harvey played him,in a role about his wartime actions against the Italians in a very good film, with Sid James(of Carry On fame) as an NCO.Harvey was a tall, handsome blond whereas BC was anything but.He looked more like Sid James...Jude Law played Vasily Zaitsev in the well-known "Enemy at the gates" and, of course, does not look a bit like a small, squat, Siberian...
    regards

    started a topic Buster Crabb

    Buster Crabb

    Well well well. An old mystery from 1956 appears to have been finally solved and seems to confirm one of the more prominent theories of that time.

    A former Russian frogman now aged 74 claims that he killed Buster Crabb when he caught him trying to place a limpet mine on the hull of the Soviet ship Ordzhonikidze which had transported Nikita Khrushchev and other leaders to Britain for meetings with the British prime minister Anthony Eden and his ministers.
