In the Mediterranean in 1941 the Italians start using underwater chariots to mine the undersides of allied ships. Explosives expert Lionel Crabbe arrives in Gibraltar to organise defenses, but finds only two British divers available to help him. Even more worrying, it seems likely that the Italians are secretly using neutral Spain across the bay as their key base. Written by

According to the book 'Brassey's Guide to War Films' by Alun Evans, during this movie's theatrical season, there were " . . . strong (and never disproved) rumours at the time of its release that the film's real-life hero, Commander Crabb [See: Lionel Crabb], had mysteriously died whilst diving to spy on a Soviet warship visiting Britain."

A plane crashes into the sea apparently just offshore from the team's base, but when Crabb goes out to search for the wreckage he takes his boat nearly half way to North Africa. See more »
Fond memories of this film as my Dad was one of the commandos who had to swim over to Spain to blow up the dastardly Axis'. Though for a Brit', it is a bit strange saying "which one are you Dad? Are you Sid James?" His memory of the commander was that he was a tad eccentric who slept in a rubber blanket. Then my Dad has lots of old recollections of World War 2, Russian Convoys, North Africa, serving on a Free French vessel (it had been re-fitted in America so had an ice-cream maker on board and as well as the British Navy ration of Rum got the French ration of Wine as well) and behind enemy lines in South East Asia. This film is the only one I know of of his own exploits though.
