Watch Your Stern is a 1960 British comedy film directed by Gerald Thomas and starring Kenneth Connor, Eric Barker and Leslie Phillips. The film was based on the play Something About a Sailor by Earle Couttie. The Royal Navy provided cooperation allowing the producers to film aboard Chatham Dockyard, HMS Jaguar[1] and HMS Chaple.

Watch Your Stern shares its cast and production team with the Carry On films, but the film is not an official member of the Carry On series.


When the crew of HMS Terrier, a British warship lose the plans for a top-secret acoustic torpedo, they try and hide the fact from an Admiral and an Admiralty scientist.
