  • Description

    Shoreham, West Sussex.

    Intertitle: "The 'TOWERS OF WAR'. Queerest craft since 'Noah's Ark' successfully launched".

    Intertitle: "Safely in position - another triumph for the British Navy - after many critical and dangerous moments".

    Panning shot of various tug boats and other craft sailing around a floating gun emplacement - made from metal and cylindrical in shape, it looks like a giant buoy. Various L/Ss of the fortress - masts and guns stick outfrom it, there is no decking or portholes - just narrow slots to fire weapons through.

    This is Nab Tower.
