    Until 5 minutes ago I didn't even know that the Smithsonian Channel UK existed, but I do now. Loads of history programmes and tonight at 2000 they have a new programme called The Lost Ships which is about searching for the WW-1 wrecks of Spee's squadron off the Falklands.

    *It says 9pm on the poster below but I have just checked the listings at it is definitely 8pm. Prior to that is Battle of Okinawa in Colour from 1900, and from 1200-1600 is The Pacific War in Colour. I'm starting to like this lock down!

    I think "super fleet" is just a tad OTT

    I might have mentioned this earlier in the thread, one of my favourite things to do during this film is to check out the medals worn by the Carry On team and see how much effort has gone in to authenticity.

    I was looking at them today and checking to see if the characters had some of the same medals, but have no clue as to how authentic they would have been for the period. I even went onto IMDB after it had finished to see if anyone had posted any medal howlers in the “Goofs” section. They hadn’t.

    That’s joining the Medal Forum a few months back what’s done that to my poor brain, I do it all the time now lol.

    Most of the medals shown are costume bling, perhaps a few Temperance medals and so on. Terry Scott and Roy Castle seem to be wearing a copy of the Punjab Medal with two clasps. This is the only medal I can identify.
