Posting the pictures on social media, Guy Ritchie mentioned: “This first picture was taken 65 years in the past in Singapore the place my dad – Captain John Ritchie – and Hugh Grant’s dad – Captain James Grant – had been stationed in the identical regiment, the Seaforth Highlanders.

“The second picture – taken on a movie set in London 65 years later, has one grandson and two sons recreating that unique picture.

“We’d discovered by co-incidence that Rory Gibb, our production assistant on the film’s granddad was in that same original picture. You can see the resemblance.”
