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.
Controversy has raged around the question of who was to blame - the Admiralty or the Admiral. Even after 60 years the squadron's intelligence officer has written to the producer: ' If I were nearer 50 than 80 I could help you far more, for I would do anything to clear his name.'
