The Cruel Sea566 viewsTug Roysterer with HMS Coreopsis (or RHS Kriezis) about to achieve fame playing the part of HMS Compass Rose. 1952.
Finding a suitable corvette was another problem The Admiralty, while anxious to co-operate in the making of the film, had got rid of all its wartime corvettes. Eventually one was located in Malta – the Coreopsis of the Flower Class – which had been loaned to the Greek navy and was now awaiting a tow back to England, and the breaker’s yard.
