By definition this has to represent Colour Sergeant (later Lt Col) Frank Bourne DCM. It looks as though the sculptor has gone for the "elderly, heroic" format in depicting him, a la Nigel Green depiction in "Zulu". In actual fact, Frank Bourne was one of the youngest and shortest men in B Company, he was referred to as "the kiddy" within the company. At that time, the ability to read and write frequently accelerated a man's advancement to Sgt and above. I would be interested to know how accurate facially this is.
