Storyline

Paul Devereaux is a second officer with lots of experience with merchant ships. But this is World War II and the Royal Canadian Navy desperately needs experienced officers. Paul is thus given command of his own ship. However, in early 1940's, Canadian Navy does not have the biggest budget nor the most qualified enlisted men. Paul's ship must escort merchant ship to Europe and back and take part in the longest naval battle in history. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

Quotes

[Oldbest has accused Fireweed of stealing his figurehead]
Paul Devereaux: You know something, I wish I *did* have your damn figurehead. We need to repair our leaking oil pans and my engineering teams could *use* the sawdust!
Oldbest: DOVER!
Paul Devereaux: DEVEREAUX, SIR! My name is DEVEREAUX! That's *French Canadian*, which I assume should be a *DOUBLE pain in the ass* for you, sir!

Need Help
4 November 2010 | by mmcpetrieSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this as a teenager with my father on TV. I know he really enjoyed this film as I did.

Our family comes from a Naval background (RCN) and my grandfather served in WWII in the battle of the Atlantic on the Corvettes and Banger Class Mine Sweepers. I am fortunate enough to have visited the H.M.C.S. Haida which has been restored (Hull) and relocated from Toronto, ON. to Hamilton, ON's peer. It really is an amazing experience to board these class ships and feel what they felt back in those days!

I need help in acquiring this video ASAP for my father and I.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks, Martin McPetrie
