After exact uniform and helmet colors from the B&W classic recently came up as a topic of discussion on the Colonial Wars Yahoo Group -- inspired by the very impressive first pics of Bob Murch's forthcoming 28mm Pulp Figures "Sergeants Three" -- I put a few pics up on my Maiwand Day blog that I took this past Fall at a local museum near where the movie Gunga Din was made, showing some costumes and props said to be from the movie. If interested, you can check them out here:

Gunga Din was one of my fathers favorite movies. I remember watching it as a young child quite often with Dad. The pulp figures and some thugee are definitely in my future!
Great pictures Mad Guru.

Glad you liked them, Syrinx0 -- and I must say your dad had EXCELLENT TASTE IN MOVIES!!!

Chick, somehow I am not in the least surprised to hear you have been in that weird little museum as well! The Scout troop had a great time in the Alabama Hills, and our campsite at the base of snow-covered Mount Whitney was one of the most beautiful spots I've ever camped at -- but finding that Gunga Din exhibit was an unforseen bonus.
