[during an air-raid, Peter Ross's plane lands temporarily for refuelling at Malta on its way to Cairo; everyone hurries off the plane and takes cover in trenches]

Flight Lt. Peter Ross:
Is it *always* like this?
Eden, Security:
Usually. Colourful, isn't it. They'll refuel as soon as they get a chance and get you off.
[the plane they have just arrived on is hit by a bomb and goes up in flames]

Eden, Security:

00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:01.955
Yes sir
00:00:02.000 --> 00:00:04.036
Come and look at this and you'll understand
00:00:05.092 --> 00:00:08.115
The Germans and Italians all along here
00:00:08.096 --> 00:00:11.155

00:00:12.096 --> 00:00:14.154
To the south here
00:00:14.096 --> 00:00:16.109
00:00:17.016 --> 00:00:20.152

You know what that means don't you
00:00:26.012 --> 00:00:29.999
All the oil in the Middle East and the route to India
00:00:30.016 --> 00:00:33.118
Right But if he's going to succeed
