Having failed to join the Royal Air Force, a hopeful airmen joins the Air Sea Rescue launches instead

This war film was developed from a short story by Richard Hope Hillary, an RAF pilot killed in action in January 1943. For Those in Peril was one of the few British productions that appeared in 1944–1945, and its semi-documentary style suited its role as a propaganda film. Much action took place in the docks at Newhaven, where some of the sidings on the quayside are visible. Although little of note features in these scenes, there is one excellent sequence filmed at Newhaven Town station that includes a very good shot of Southern Railway 2 NOL EMU No.1833 arriving on a Headcode 1 service, Lewes-Seaford.

Some railway wagons are visible on the far quayside to the left of this shot of Coxswain Robert Griffith with David Farrar

The approaching train arrives, formed of 2 NOL EMU No.1833. Headcode 1 was given to a number of routes, in this instance Lewes-Seaford.
Ralph Michael has alighted from the train at Newhaven Town as the guard gets ready for departure. The signalman has already closed the gates of Drove Road level crossing.
Ralph Michael and David Farrar have a chat at Newhaven Town with a rail-served goods shed in the right hand background. The signal that has been neatly framed between the two is a most impressive structure indeed.
