  1. Geoffrey Mowbray says

    This is a pre World War II film as the ship (either HMS Rodney or Nelson) is in the peace time dark grey of the Atlantic Fleet, later renamed the Home Fleet. The ship is virtually in her completed state without the large number alterations that the war brought on; e.g. radar antennas and numerous light anti-aircraft guns.
