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

In the scene where Crabbs runs past a white ship at the beginning of the film you can quite clearly see the ship name "Eddybeach". The film was set in WW2 yet that ship wasn't started to be built until 1950, launched 1951. See more »
As Lt Crabb is making his first dive, the vessel in the background in the RFA Eddy Beach, this vessel was not laid down until 1950. The vessel to the foreground, the F605 was not commissioned until 1945. The movie is set in 1942. 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.
