An Air Sea Rescue Semi-Documentary
17 July 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another story along the same lines as 'The Sea Shall Not Have Them' The big difference in this film ,is that it was made during the war, with several real life sailors participating as crew members of the M.T.B. and so has an authentic feel about it. The film follows launch 183 and the skipper (David Farrar) who has to teach a new crew member,who has been rejected by the R.A.F. and is feeling bitter, the skills of handling the launch in all sorts of adverse conditions. Then when a British bomber crash lands in a minefield, 183 is sent to retrieve the crew in the face of the German shore guns. While certain scenes are not as dramatic as 'Sea Shall Not Have Them', the fact that it was shot in 1944, makes it interesting to watch.
