  • Too Often Overlooked

    Corvette K-225 is a classic WW2 "flag waver" too often overlooked by the fans of war movies. The production values are; at very minimum: quite good for its time and it includes actual footage from this theater of warThe reality that Canada doesn't make a lot of noise about contributions made actually hurts well made films such as this.There are an incredible number of Americans who had grandfathers, great uncles and brothers who went north to enlist in the Canadian army, navy and airforce in WW2; long before the American politicians of the day admitted the threat to domestic freedom and liberty that Hitler posed. Several of the fabled "Tuskegee Airmen" earned their wings under the Commonwealth Training Program as members originally of the Royal Canadian Air Force where they were taken and treated as equals to white recruits.Without the escort of the Royal Canadian Navy in the north Atlantic a geat many of the cargo ships destined for Great Britian would not have made it. Many Brits would very likely have starved.This is a movie that is a tribute not only to Canadians but to all who served.

    I joined the Royl Canadian Navy in 1948. Because K255 is such a reealistic movie it was used a a training film by the RCN. I remember seeing it several times during my trainingas various parts were stressed. For oold times sake, I would love to see it again and be able to show it to my chiildren and grandchildren.

    A excellent account of Canada's fighting NAVY to survive the onslought of NAZI U boats,during WW2.A great movie with great and excellent actors.The movie tells the true way it was on Corvetts in the mess decks, down in the boiler room punching fires.A great feat to get the Ships Company to act as one, as professional fighting men.The Jimmy,(number one) trying to impress the Captain,and to whip the crew into Pusser routine.It even tells of the customs of Hands drawing their tot (pusserneats- navy rum) from the Rum Bosun.A great and exciting story,A salute to the Officers and Men of the RCN

    This is an excellant portrayal of the War at Sea in the North Atlantic. Actual war time footage both ashore and at sea provide great authenticy to the hardships and courage of the crews of the small Corvettes escorting convoys from Halifax Nova Scotia to the UK during the War.Incidently the only surviving war-time vessel is K 181 moored in Halifax which has been fully restored and outfitted and open for the public.She experinced considerable action throughout the war.
