The Yangtze Incident
« on: January 31, 2018, 15:35:30 »
The story of HMS Amethyst during the Chinese Civil War of 1949.  Just watching this now, it's not too bad at all.

I have an Android box and use an app called Terrarium TV.  It's amazing what you can find on the particular app.

The Cruel Sea is one of the best movies of all time. Showed it to several fellows I know whose fathers' served in the RCN in the Second World War. They had no idea what it was like until seeing the film.

Also like Battle of the River Plate (HMNZS Achilles played by herself is remarkable).
