W. P. Drury's popular literary and theatrical piece The Flag Lieutenant spawned this 1927 sequel. Henry Edwards once more essays the role of Lt. Dick Lascelles, who in the 1926 filmization of Flag Lieutenant managed to clear himself from accusations of cowardice. This time, Lt. Lascelles saves a remote African post from a native uprising. The film's "Sun Never Sets" jingoism was easier to swallow in 1927 (when there was still a British Empire) than it might be today. Isabel Jeans likewise returns from the 1926 Flag Lieutenant as Pauline, the love of Lascelles' life.
