  • Description

    Full title reads: "Off Portland. A little bedraggled flag - will now be the tombstone over the sea grave of the ill-fated M.2 & her crew of 52."


    A small limp flag suspended from a buoy floats on the waves above the scene of the sinking of the M2 submarine.

    Intertitle reads: "'Till your Captain shall wake you'."

    Intertitle reads: "Hail and farewell!"

    (Intertitles fade in and out)

    Sound Track Missing - I assume it would have been sad music.
