Facts about

The black-and-white feline seen aboard the Amethyst represents "Able Seacat" Simon, the ship's cat who became a celebrity after receiving the PDSA's Dickin Medal (at the behest of Lt. Cmdr. Kerans) for morale raising, despatching a rat infestation and surviving cannon shell injuries. The entire Amethyst crew attended his funeral in 1949 following his death of a viral infection caused by his war wounds.
The real HMS Amethyst was used at the start of filming. A special effects explosion was made too big and blew a hole in the hull, flooding the engine room. Amethyst was sent to the breakers and HMS Magpie was used for the rest of the film.
HMS Amethyst was brought out of storage to participate in the film.
