Nazi invasion of small Buckinghamshire village, and the villagers giving them the cold steel up 'em. Excellent wartime propaganda.
Photo 021 of the church shows it now without the war memorial seen in the film. I am almost certain that this was a prop for the film and not a real one. In the film ou can clearly see the names listed on it and it includes a Major G. Fraser. Mrs Fraser who lives in the manor house in Bramley End in the film is a sixty-something woman who is presumably a widow and it would tie in that her husband, never mentioned, would have probably held such a position in the army. The plaque commemorates 'the men of this parish who fell' rather than giving an actual location and that slight vagueness also suggests that it was no more real than the large cross for the German soldiers in the churchyard at the end of the film.

John Larkin states that Turville was also used in Dead of Night, 1945.
