    Can anyone help with this please? I remember as a child in the late 50s watching a war film in which a Walrus seaplane is sent out to a ship - presumably as a rescue mission? Anyway, it lands on the water and a German mine floats into it blowing the aeroplane up. Does anyone know the title of the film please?

    For Those in Peril

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0036834/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

    And it's available on DVD, too

    A film that focuses on the work of the RAF rescue launches, as featured in a couple of other films - One of Our Aircraft is Missing, and the post-war The Sea Shall Not Have Them. Again, both are available on DVD.

    Thanks to both of you for giving me a lead on this one. I will check it out. As with all random memories, I could only remember the one thing about the film which was the part about the Walrus plane blowing up. Anyway, thanks again.
