Horatio Hornblower The Fire Ships Dreadnought Foster and Capt Hammond

I love this scene from The Fire Ships. In this scene, Captain Hammond picks up Dreadnought Foster and Horatio Hornblower after they saved the HMS Indefatigable from a Fireship. Capt Foster takes offense because Hammond wasn’t there to pick them up right away. Such formality even as they’re exchanging insults and challenging each other to a Duel.
