Feature-length drama about the mystery of Sandringham Company, which disappeared in action at Gallipoli in 1915. Commanded by Captain Frank Beck, their estate manager, the men advanced into battle, were enveloped in a strange mist and never seen again.
Did You Know?
In 1918, the War Graves Commission began to search the Gallipoli battlefields in an effort to locate and identify bodies belonging to the Commonwealth. A Norfolk cap badge was found buried amongst some of the bodies, which led Reverend Charles Pierrepoint Edwards to conduct a more detailed examination of the area where the cap badge was found. In all, 122 of the 180 bodies found were identified by their Norfolk badges and flashes. See more

Captain Frank Beck
Now I'd like to think that I have many sons. I've certainly held one or two of you rascals in my arms in the first few days of your lives. So what shall I tell your families? I shall tell them that whilst we are away, I will be your father. And God willing, I'll bring you all safely back home.
