Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this war drama, an aspiring pilot who didn't make the grade, joins the air-sea rescue service instead. He is on a recovery mission off the French coast when his boat meets up with German ships, mines, and shore batteries. The rescuers successfully save the downed air crew they were sent out for, but are suddenly bombarded by a German plane. Their commander is killed and the heroic young man must safely take the boat back to Britain.
