    Surely "Convoy" was a record by W C McCall - we gotta mighty convoy trucking through the night

    Dickie Attenborough was the captain of TSTDOS ... Trev isn't in that film.

    How about The Gift Horse with Trevor Howard and Richard Attenborough.Loosely based on the story of H.M.S.Campbeltown and the St.Nazaire raid.The first half of the film features the lend-lease destroyer H.M.S Ballantrae on convoy escort duty where everything that can go wrong does so until they finally bag a U-boat.The second half features the raid on the German dry-dock.One of my favourite old war films.

    "evening all"

    This film is shown regularly on CH4 and Film 4.
