    Documentary short about frigate HMS Plym, a World War II British warship mothballed after the war. Britain chose this vessel to be the platform for its first atomic bomb test during operation Hurrican, in the Monte Bello Islands off the western coast of Australia. Using propaganda skills learned during WW2, the tale unfolds as a eulogy of a ship making the ultimate sacrifice in the name of national defense. Jack Hawkins' sonorous narration adds to the portent of doom, and William G. Penney, known as the father of the British atomic bomb, makes a cameo.
