A two-part documentary.

Part 1: Bill Abbey's war service was spent in the County class cruisers of the Royal Navy. He vividly recalls escorting convoys to Russia.

Part 2: Bill Abbey continues recalling his war service. Most vivid are his memories of the sinking of the Hood by the German pocket battleship Bismarck - and the subsequent chase that ended in the Bismarck destruction.
