Summary
The true story of England's vanished regiment is revealed. It is one of the most compelling and curious legends of the First World War. Led by Captain Frank Beck, a favorite agent of King George V, Sandringham Company was comprised entirely of servants, grooms, and gardeners from the King's Norfolk Estate. On August 12, 1915, the unit marched into battle against the Turks in Gallipoli and simply vanished, never to be heard from again. Queen Alexandra was the driving force behind the investigation into the real fate of the battalion. Despite her extensive inquiries, no trace of the men was ever discovered. This film brings the details of what really happened in 1915 to the screen for the first time
