With Brian Donlevy as it’s star Cavalcade tells the story of one day in the life of a Navy Doctor. His official title is Medical Officer but to the men on his ship who spoke of him with deep affection as “Doc” he holds a special place. Even in peacetime his is no simple medical post but in war with shells bursting overhead and fire raging in the holes the navy doctor’s coolness and courage has made him time and time again one of the true heroes of our era.

This radio play written especially for Cavalcade by Paul Peters is based on the experiences of Commander Charles F. Flower of the Astoria.
