Title:U-BOAT ATTACKS ON CONVOYS NO. 1 [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 1166
Summary: Naval instructional film using animated models to illustrate a U-boat attack on a convoy.
Description: The film based on real incidents, describes how a U- boat was able to torpedo a merchant ship and then escape unharmed, due to a series of elementary mistakes made by the crew of an escort vessel faulty communications, last minute changes of orders, etc. At a moment of crucial importance in the action, the need for rapid, clear thinking is emphasised by the appearance of a clock face - the audience is given 30 seconds in which to make their command decision before seeing which tactics were in fact pursued.
