Yangtse Incident on Channel 4 today!

#4
Jesus it was twice last week. I've watched it that often my Chinese is almost fluent, and I can imitate Chinese gun fire.
It is a good film though even if it does evoke memories of the lower deck in fuckin old tubs.

Great Movie I've never been up the Yangtse but it looked more like the Dart to me!
Brings back memories of the lower deck as I found it it 57 on a Battle Class Destroyer.
Bunks and microwaves in the Mess? who needs them? Climb out your hammock put your bare feet on the table where some are eating,brew a wet with three week old tea leaves,puts lead in your pencil! I think!

Been there done that its better when your feet are on the table that baggy skid marked Y fronts are sagging down to the knees and you let go a wet fart. And remember in the tropics or the Artic;- Sunday tea was always salad!!!

The Amethyst, at full speed ahead, passed through to the mouth of the river and made contact with HMS Concord and sent the time-honoured signal.
"Have rejoined the fleet off Woosung...God save the King." Ps did she just slip her chain, and leave the anchor on the river bed?????

Where was it filmed? I always thought it looked like the Dart? Interesting to see William Hartnell as the Chief, he always seemed to be playing SNCOs before Dr Who
