    What did you hear? That the Commonwealth boats don't know port from starboard? Sadly, that's true.

    You'd think they'd at least know port from sherry.

    There was not Port or Sherry, only Rum and More Rum.

    I haven't seen the movie yet, but in the book the escort comprised two destroyers - American and Polish - and two corvettes - British and Canadian - which would have been Flower class.

    I didn't hear any Polish accents in the movie. I'll watch it again this afternoon.
