Carrington V.C. is a 1955 British legal drama produced by Teddy Baird and directed by Anthony Asquith. The film revolves around Major Charles "Copper" Carrington (David Niven), a well-respected officer who is decorated with awards including the Victoria Cross for his actions during World War II. However, he was recently accused of a series of crimes that may permanently force him to leave the military in shame. His alleged crimes include embezzling money, leaving the base at unappointed hours, and having a female officer in his private quarters. Major Carrington offers legitimate explanations for all of the allegations, but he is unable to present any solid evidence due to a series of unfortunate events. He soon loses the trial, even though he is innocent of the crimes. Little does Carrington know that he has a large number of supporters who have discovered evidence that could reinstate him to his position as an officer.
