  • Description

    Full title reads: "Spithead. Britain's Might. Lowering Skies and a drifting Sea Mist enhances majestic spectacle of the ships of war - great & small - as they leave for Spring Manoeuvres."

    Spithead, off the coast of Portsmouth, Hampshire.

    Various shots of British Naval Warships as they make their way out to sea. Some of the shots of the Navy ships are a little foggy due to the weather.

    Among the Ships names are the Light cruiser Centaur, HMS Windsor, HMS Repulse, and HMS Warspite.

    (Sound track very poor quality, but does allow naming of ships)
