Trivia

The British destroyer H23 is portrayed by the German escort destroyer (Flottenbegleiter) F7, which at this point served as a torpedo retrieval ship and was no longer a front-line warship. F7 was heavily modified cosmetically, with fake guns, torpedo tubes and heightened funnels to appear more like an actual warship. See more »

My dad was in that movie! He was an extra. He was one of the sailors jumping overboard. About a 3 second clip.
