  • WW2 RAF Film

    I am trying to remember a WWII film set on an RAF airbase.

    The main female character loses her husband – he has left behind his lucky mascot which may, or may not have been a lighter. She then falls in love again and gives the 'lucky' lighter to her new love. At the end of the film he too is killed and he too has forgotten the lighter.
    Thanks, Mandy

      The little formatting commands like Bold and Italic work perfectly in some of the sub-forums here, but not in others. It is a quirk that has yet to be ironed out. It was noted when the transfer was made to the new host server, but we were all just so grateful to WearySloth for providing a home, that no-one pressed him further on sorting out this oddity.

          Pleasure Mandy - I forgot to say it is one of my favourite films - especially the first half,we do not often see Douglas Bostons on film :)

          The airfield used for the filming was at (then) RAF Catterick,N Yorks - now an Army camp.
