  • Description

    United States of America, U.S.A.

    Title reads: "Salvage attempt fails when within an ace of success. Heavy Seas defeat efforts to raise sunken Submarine S.51".

    Intertitle: "The bow can be just discerned between the foremost pontoons".

    High angled shot of two boats and two large barrel shaped floats struggling to stay afloat in rough waves. Various shots of several large floats being bobbing up and down in choppy water (devices for raising sunken vessels?). Men frantically scramble over floats securing ropes and pulling up tubes; constantly battered by waves, looks like very dangerous work.

    Cuts exist - please see separate record.
