Film information

Story: Dramatic reconstruction of two key naval battles fought in the early days of the First World War. During the Battle of Coronel in November 1914, gunfire between the two nations resulted in the Germans sinking two British ships, HMS Monmouth and HMS Good Hope, causing the fatalities of 1600 sailors. To enact their revenge, a month later Britain sent two battle cruisers, Inflexible and Invincible, to engage the Geman fleet in the Battle of the Falkland Islands. Led by Vice Admiral Sturdee (Craighall Sherry), this time they were victorious and sank the German cruisers SMS Scharnhorst and SMS Gneisenau. The feature also includes an original score composed by Simon Dobson and performed by 24 members of the Royal Marines Band Service.
