Rupert Davies as Rear-Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock in a dramatised reconstruction of the Battle of Coronel.
I am going in with torpedoes, Thompson. I cannot leave my admiral. Sir, there is no admiral to leave. So ended the first major British naval engagement since Trafalgar, with two cruisers and their entire complements lost, together with their admiral. The Germans were virtually untouched.
