Propaganda Film - Between Friends - 1942

The ORB for 609 Squadron notes that on Oct. 21, 1942 the disperal was turned into a film studio for the production of a propaganda movie. Several pilots from 609 Squadron, incl. F/L Peter Raw, were used as extras. My understanding from another source is that the film was to be called "Between Friends" and it was shot by John Boulting. Can any of the forum members tell me more about this film and whether it actually aired? Thanks.

Nothing in Boulting’s credits on IMDb seems to fit, although he did make “Journey Together” about a bomber navigator, which came out in 1945.

Wikipedia has an A-Z of British WW2 propaganda films too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego...opaganda_films

If it was a short rather than a feature film, I’m not sure where you’d look. You could search Ministry of Information which I think was in overall charge of films
