A group of Royal Navy ratings spend their last 24 hours ashore in Plymouth – with dramatic results

This ensemble drama about Royal Navy ratings from HMS Raleigh now lies seemingly forgotten and features a number of scenes filmed at Plymouth station, with HST’s and parcels stock visible in some shots. There is also a scene filmed on the stone overbridge leading to Wearde Quay on the Cornish side of the Tamar Estuary. The bridge is the first to cross the Cornish main line after that at Saltash station, and although the railway can be made out in the background no trains are seen. With thanks to reelstreets for the movie stills.
