"Colonel Merton (Hawkins) returns home one day to find a burglar rifling through his possessions. The thief turns out to be a member of his old regiment and Merton is determined to find out why a distinguished soldier turned to a life of crime, triggering memories of their wartime experiences. Post-war London acts as a backdrop to the film's compassionate look at the hardships suffered by soldiers back on civvy street. Hamilton handles the excellent cast well; look out for Dora Bryan as a flirty servicewoman.

We look forward to welcoming Michael Medwin to introduce the screening."
