    Scapa Flow, Orkney, Scotland.

    Title: "SUCCESS! First of Germany's scuttles fleet raised by Messers. Cox & Danks, after months of incessant toil".

    M/S of the deck of a salvage vessel, men turn the enormous handles on a row of winches. High angled shot of two salvage vessels moored parallel to each other, on both sides cranes and winches work to lift the sunken battleships / submarines from the seabed.

    Intertitle: "After 5 years on the Ocean bed".

    Various M/Ss on the surfaced wreck, mangled and covered in seaweed, men work to clean the wreck up. Panning shot of a wreck moored next to the salvage vessel - looks like a German U-boat.
