  • Description

    Cuts (out takes, rushes) for story in Colour Pictorial - CP 661. The original story and reel 1 of out takes are on Pathe Master tape *PM0419*.

    Cuts for story HMS GLAMORGAN - COMPUTER SHIP OF THE FUTURE. Similar footage to cut story about life on board this guided missile battleship. A different sequence shows sailors hauling anchor chains in on deck; several aerial shots of the battleship at sea.

    More nice food / canteen shots; this food looks nicer than the stuff in the cut story; a longer sequence than that in the cut story shows a slightly effeminate sailor in gold wristwatch using a machine to dollop soft ice-cream on plates of tinned peaches. Some of the sailors lining up for food make faces and wave at the camera - where are they now, I wonder?

    More footage of men receiving injections in the sick bay; we do get to see the needle being inserted to a man's arm here - not for the squeamish! Several shots of the radar antennae on the ship; shells being loaded in the gun turret.
