The Warrior Strain

The Warrior Strain is a 1919 British silent war film directed by Floyd Martin Thornton and starring Sydney Wood, Harry Agar Lyons and J. Edwards Barker. The future Edward VIII, then Prince of Wales, appeared in the film. During the First World War, a group of British cadets thwart the plans of a German agent. It bears strong similarities to The Power of Right also directed by Thornton and featuring the Prince of Wales, which was released the same year.[1]
