    Coastal Command is a 1942 British film made by the Crown Film Unit for the Ministry of Information.
    The movie, distributed by RKO, dramatized the work of RAF Coastal Command. (1 Hour Film.)

    One of my favourite B&W war films "The sea shall not have them" depicts RAF Motor launch/MTB searching for downed Bomber crew and very important passenger in the North Sea. It was filmed off the coast near Felixstowe, Felixstowe being a RAF rescue base, with boats and seaplanes.

    Funnily enough, his Urq-ness and me discussed The Sea Shall Not Have Them not that long ago. Superb links, Fred. Thanks.
