The Purple Plain
British airmen based in Burma towards the end of WW2, all going a bit crazy with the heat and the war. Plane crash lands with three of them on board, and they have to try to walk to safety.
Great. Good characterisation of the main bloke, although the fat one seemed a bit contrived. And the young one too, thinking about it, was a bit stereotyped maybe? Jolly good overall though.
Score: 7.5
