    Full title reads "Off Portsmouth THE NAVY'S WONDER SHIP - £ 7,500,000 battleship "Nelson" - Flagship of the Home Fleet - goes aground for nine hours and then successfully re-floated."

    Portsmouth, Hampshire.

    Battleship Nelson at sea off Portsmouth, signalling with the lamp. It is too close to shore and a great effort is put into pushing it off coast. Seven tugs, several oil tankers and battleships are employed in this operation. Various shots of several ships surrounding Nelson in an attempt to help. Several shots of battleship with ships around. Picture disappears at (01:12:23) and only the soundtrack remains until the end of item at (01:12:40).
