A well-meaning but accident-prone naval officer is put in charge of a mothballed vessel with a disreputable crew
This comedy was shot largely at the now completely redeveloped Columbia Wharf in Grays, Essex, and in several of the early scenes on the quayside various wagons can be seen, along with a couple of rail-mounted cranes. There is also a short comedy sequence filmed at the entrance to Brickett Wood station. The film was immediately followed by Further Up the Creek (qv), which has a little bit more in the way of railways. Thanks to reelstreets for the screen captures.
