    Can anyone help with a film I saw in my youth, so were talking about the early to lat 1960's.



    I can't remember who was in it or what the overall plot was but what I do remember is a tank in the desert, dunno what or where the rest of the squadron were, but they seemed to be on their ow. One of the crew members is ejected from the tank by the others and precious gems (diamonds perhaps) are topical in the film.



    Apart from that I remember very little but I hope someone can help.



    Thanks

    It might be " A Twist of Sand". That did involve a desert journey by a varied group of ex WW 11 veterans to recover a hoard of diamonds.



    Came out in 1968 so the year is about right.



    BTW - The film is very rarely shown which is a great shame 'cause it is a cut above the rest.
