The Broad Fourteens

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I'm not sure whether this has "appeared" before. A tweet popped up from @seaspitfires with a link to the film The Broad Fourteens by the Crown Film Unit and produced in 1943/44.  A tale of Vospers in action and well worth a look for reference: https://t.co/2nM4m5CylY  There also a useful commentary about the film on www.spitfiresoftheseaa.com.  It was completed after VE Day and consequently its relevance as an "information" film diminished and was not released/circulated.  The Crown Film Unit used serving servicemen (and equipment) and as a consequence it is the "real thing" albeit that the story is a fiction.
