    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    France.

    Various shots of the large liner ship 'Normandie' in before its launch. It is surrounded by cranes. Priests and choir arrive for launching service. Various dignitaries arrive on the podium to launch the ship. The ship is blessed and launched. It begins to move down the slipway to the water. The dignitaries cheer and applaud. The ship moves into the water. (Good shots). More shots of the launch from a different angle.

    (It may be that the woman doing the launching is Madame Lebrun, wife of the French President - see 32/88)
