Summary: Dramatised Military Instructional film showing how easily sensitive information can be disclosed to foreign agents. The testing of a new shell fuse at sea, onboard the Hunt class destroyer HMS Cattistock (L.35), is unsuccessful, and a rating from the ship discusses it loudly in a pub that evening. He is overheard by a spy, who passes the information on to his superiors.
