having seen the film one of our aircraft is missing , can anyone tell me when the aircraft is shot down and the crew are found by 2 children they have a pin under there collars to show they were with the resistance, now is this true or as the film was a bit of 1942 properganda just for the film? as i would have thought the germans would have wised up and checked with the kids and took reprisals ? yes /no , bri..

Difficult to answer as I dont remember seeing the movie :(
What did the pins look like?
I do know that a lot of people used to wear anti-german, or pro-royal family pins, the nazis (dutch and german) used to respond with violence so quickly people started wearing them on the other side of their collar.
I'd be more suprised about RAF men recognizing those pins then kids wearing them.
But i'd have to see the movie, and I will try to!

the children were wearing a safety pin under their collars to show it was a sign against Germans and quislings the idea was as the children told the airmen its a safety pin i.e. shut keeping there mouth shut the reason the airmen knew what was being said was because the pilot was a Dutchman or was married to a Dutch lady and he spoke it because of her, if that helps id then.. the film pops up from time to time on the bbc its a classic I think,? on thinking about it if it were true shurely the film makers wouldn't give away such an idea on film for German spies to see?bri..

Did you order it from the US? I noticed the post on the RAF list. Don't forget that without the right DVD player European and US DVD's aren't compatible.

Isn't that what the public do when they turn up at events in my old RAF No1s ? Just checking that you were all still alive - no one has posted on here for days. I start to panic when the Dutch arn't arguing with each other, you know something is wrong.

I prefer the one about the shipyard. Think its called the Silver Fleet. About the "Quisling" shipyard owner who isn't. Calls himself Piet Hein (?). 1st Uboat built for the Germans is hi - jacked and sailed to England. The second is blown up on its test voyage with the hero on board. All good stuff. Bet marloes hasnt got this one either.
