His Majesty's Gun Boat 1087 (MTB) is a proud vessel. So too are its crew. So, the War over, three of the crew decide to buy and refit the ship for a smuggling venture across the Channel. The former leader stifles his conscience for the brandy and nylons, but then the cargoes become more perilous as they join forces with serious crime. The Ship refuses to cooperate and will not accept its degradation. Everyone pays dearly.

Also known as 'PT Raiders' (US Title)
