Dumped - The Underwater Naval Graveyard

During the Second World War, a Fleet Air Arm Observer Training School was established in Trinidad.

Somewhat removed from war yet still facing U-Boat danger, hundreds of young men undertook their training there.

At the end of the war, many of their planes were loaded onto aircraft carriers and dumped into the ocean.

This is the story of two veterans as they travel back to Trinidad, to relive their memories, find out more about the dumping, and bid a final farewell to their friends.
