  • Description

    Great film about the training of officer cadets in the Royal Navy.

    5 Steps - Towards a Commission in The Royal Navy.

    Number 4 - Various shots of Royal Navy Officer cadets training on warship. VS of frigate at sea. Shots of the trainees helping out in various parts of the ship - navigating, in the galley / kitchen, in the engine room, cleaning the ship's nameplate 'HMS Scarborough', using radar, manning anti-aircraft guns, missiles, meeting with senior officers and young women, relaxing in hammocks and bunks (this sequence has great groovy 1960s sound track).

    Number 5 - One of the cadets leads a party of divers to recover equipment - possibly in Malaysia. They come under fire and have to mount a daring counter attack against the terrorists. (Looks like a reconstruction). The cadet has to write a letter to the Admiralty commending his men.

    01:06:46 End credits.

    The first roll is on PM2753.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
