  • Description

    Various shots of battleships or frigates at sea.

    "Every year the navies go one better than the year before...better and bigger smokes is the aim of these protecting ships." L/S of large cloud of black smoke emerging from one of the ships. Ship passes the camera with large clouds of smoke billowing from its funnels. Another ship passes by - smaller than the other but still producing lots of smoke. They are laying a smoke screen I presume.

    "Denser than ever, until the whole sea appears blotted out behind the saving cloud - " The ship and its smoke are seen from on board another ship. L/S of the smoke cloud on the water.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 667.
