  • Synopsis

    A British coastal command pilot, Rick, based near Portsmouth, sinks what he believes to be a German submarine, unaware that a British submarine is also in that part of the Channel. When it emerges that the British sub has been lost with all hands, it is assumed that it was the sub sunk by Rick. Although a Court of Inquiry finds that the captain of the submarine was principally at fault for not keeping to his time schedule, Rick is criticized for having failed to properly identify his target. However, his CO disagrees with the Court's finding and exonerates him, but Rick requests a posting. When that does not work out, Rick volunteers for a dangerous flying duty testing a new type of guided bomb. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Mona, who works as a barmaid, overhears information which might help to uncover what really happened out in the Channel.
