  • 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.
