Nicholas Jones aka Lt Buckland

Movies: HH2: Mutiny and Retribution

Character : Lt Buckland (1st Lt aboard the HMS Renown). After being in the British Navy for 22 years, Lt Buckland is reluctant to take command -and who would blame him?-  at first and at once feels the burden weighing heavy on him. After talking to Col. Ortega he begins to feel a jealous of Hornblower (hence him sending Hornblower to set the charges by himself and then not waiting around to pick him up -if he survives).

My comments: Mr Jones has done an excellent job of bringing Lt Buckland to life, right out of the pages of C.S. Forester's Lt Hornblower !
