  • Description

    Full titles read: 'Ashore on the Goodwins - Ramsgate lifeboat out 30 hours in mountainous seas to aid stranded trawler "Cyclone".'

    Ramsgate, Kent.

    L/S of the trawler, 'Cyclone', at sea in extremely rough conditions - the camera moves up and down alarmingly with the huge waves, making this cataloguer feel rather seasick!

    Intertitle reads: 'Dover tugs stand by.'
    L/S shows two tugs on standby; L/S of the lifeboat (?), which seems to be anchored and has several people (rescued?) on board.

    Intertitle reads: 'Our camera-man... [sic] who also took a chance... then "faded out".'
    (There is no shot of the Pathe cameraman following this title, unfortunately!)

    Note: do not watch this film if you have a hangover...
