Sword of Honour is a 1939 British drama film directed by Maurice Elvey and starring Geoffrey Toone, Sally Gray, Dorothy Dickson. The screenplay concerns a recruit at Sandhurst who initially makes a poor impression, but goes on to prove himself by riding in the Grand National.[1][2] Location shooting took place at Sandhurst, while interiors were shot at Walton Studios. Shortly afterwards, Elvey shot another military-themed film Sons of the Sea at Dartmouth Naval College.[3]
