Looking for this movie for many years. Help S.O.S.
It is about a British destroyer during WW2 that gets torpedoed by a german U-Boat. The Destroyer is sunk and the German sub surfaces and shoots some of the sailors in the water.The captain notes the number of the sub and after he and some of the crew return to England,the captain is given a new destroyer and when he puts to sea again he is determined to find that sub and send it to the bottom. In ensuing action he is wounded and while lying in his bunk he hears the pinging of the sonar when they find a sub.
They home in on the sub and drop depth charges,fire Y-guns. The sub has to surface and the captain sees that number again. The sub that sunk his ship. They eventually ram the sub and send it to the bottom.
Details might be a little thin,but that is basically the story line.
I keep placing Jack Hawkins or Trevor Howard as the Captain.
My wife of 51 years remembers it as well.
Thanks for your help,
