Thursday 13 February— The Cruel Sea
The next of our classic film showings accompanied by supper and interval refreshments is The Cruel Sea.
Despite his guilt over a recent harrowing sea battle in which many of his men were lost, Lt. Cmdr. George Ericson is assigned to helm the new H.M.S. Compass Rose with the help of steadfast seaman Lt. Lockhart. When the small vessel is sent to escort convoys of ships fighting German U-boats in the North Atlantic, the mettle of the novice crew is tested by the weather, the turbulent sea and enemy attacks — one of which nearly destroys the Compass Rose.
