Another Battle of Britain film...

#1
Does anyone remember a 'black and white' Fifties British film based on the B of B where a Scottish pilot is wounded and has to be 'talked down' to land at the drome?
Think the film starred Kenneth More........

The pilot must have survived, because he was later killed in (but prior to) the Great Escape, but he survived that too - and became Shooey McPhie, the chef in the Crossroads Motel.

'Septic' was played by John Gregson who was quite a star in his day.

'Shooie' was played by Angus Lennie (aka FO 'Mole' Ives in TGE)

Spotting out.

'Septic'! It all comes back to me now - like a nightmare....Silvester, you're sad, hope you haven't based your life on this piece of crap. Mind you, I must be equally sad as I remember the film clearly now. Next question. OK, how did Septic disgrace himself when he joined the Squadron?

Think 'Shooie' played a navigator in '633 Squadron'

Septic disgraced himself by scrambling, having a go at some Germans then landing, all while having his radio on send and jamming out the net.
