Synopsis

In 1893, a London working girl falls in love with a naval lieutenant, and bears him an illegitimate son. Years later, her son, Albert Brown, joins the navy during World War I, and is captured by a German ship, from which he later escapes from. On his island hideout, he single-handedly kills enough Germans on board a passing battleship to bring about the ship's capture. Albert's dead body is discoverd by his father, who finds on the boy the watch he gave his mother years ago. The Royal Navy later erects a cross in Albert's honor atop the barren island.
