Carrington VC

Available on FilmRise
The truth about Major Charles Carrington's (David Niven) court martial is that the truth may never come out. A decorated soldier, having received the Victoria Cross for his gallant efforts during WWII, Major Carrington now finds himself accused of embezzling funds from his unit. He claims the money taken was part of a sum owed him by the army and that he notified his superiors about the back pay due. With his wife ill and a mounting debt needing to be paid at home, he took the funds but demands that he did so lawfully. When he tries to corroborate this story others complicate matters when they are not as forthcoming with one all important detail, the truth.
