The attack by British submarines on the German battleship "Tirpitz" in a Norwegian fjord during World War II.
The watch on Commander Fraser's (Sir John Mills') wrist is the famous Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, a watch with a case that can be turned around so that the front faces downwards, thus protecting the glass from hard knocks. This robust watch is nowadays considered as an ultra-luxury item.
What the devil's that?
Cmdr. Fraser: Proof sir.
Adm. Ryder: Proof?
Cmdr. Fraser: Yes sir. Those were dummy charges on the hull of this ship. If they hadn't been dummies, you'd be on the bottom now sir, for the duration.
The sailors and marines on the Tirpitz are wearing incorrect steel helmets. The ones that they are wearing are of World War I-type pattern, they are larger with vent studs sticking out.
