  • Description

    Teenage Terry works on a building site as tea boy. We see him on a roof sawing wood, two other men are making the roof, in the background a large housing estate under construction. Terry is next seen in a suit walking down the High Street, he enters a Naval Recruitment centre. He is questioned by a recruitment officer. He takes a written test,an eye test, and is informed of possible jobs in the navy. As the jobs are described Terry is seen doing all of them, firing missiles from a battleship, clambering up the side of a ship as part of a boarding party, icing a cake, working in a surgery, as a stores accountant noting items as they come aboard, working in the radio room, fixing a helicopter, and even as Captain of the ship in full uniform on the bridge, and marching along with rifle.
    Terry's mum talks to her neighbour as they walk down a terraced street, followed by another discussion in the house with Terry and his brother.
    Terry on a train to Portsmouth, he climbs down from a truck with other recruits and lines up for his uniform. Cap band reads "H.M.S. Raleigh". Trained cadets are seen marching in the camp. We see Terry and other cadets during their training which includes: having a medical, eating in the mess, parade marching and rifle drill, barrack room kit inspection, rifle firing on a range, assault training crossing a river by rope while explosions are going off. During this Terry falls into the river. Classroom lessons, rowing a whaler, playing snooker in the Mess, below decks fixing a leaking hull, fire fighting drill, life saving in the swimming pool.
    Terry on parade after completing initial training. He walks with his proud mum with other cadets in the background. He tells her he now has to go to Collingwood for more advanced training. We now see him doing more technical training, dials switches and video screens. Calibrating radar and classroom lessons with talk of magnetic fields and practical work on electric motors
    Back home Terry and his brother row and prepare for a party. Very good teenage 60's short skirt party with dancing.
