Postscript on screen: "In a dozen famous ancient states, now prostrate under the Nazi yoke, the masses of the people, all classes and creeds, await the hour of liberation, when they, too, will be able once again to play their part and strike their blows like men. That hour will strike, and its solemn peal will proclaim that the night is past and that the dawn has come."

I'm sure that the opening credits thank the "Royal N O R W E I G A N Government" - i.e. they misspell Norwegian.
Is this some archaic spelling, is it a goof, or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
(This was on the TV this afternoon so I couldn't rewind to check, sorry!)
Otherwise I thought that the film was OK, for a bit of wartime propaganda. Not exactly in the league of In Which We Serve, and obviously not as "balanced" as post-war films such as "The Cruel Sea", but the performances were largely OK and the script not too "tally ho chaps".
Some of the stock (?) footage and props were a bit flaky, but that's not surprising, there was a war on, you know...
