    The officer inspecting throughout is King George VI. Opening shot is probably of HMS King George V. All shots through to 01:14 are aboard RN ships. At 00:10 the King is greeted by Adm Sir John Tovey, Commander-in-Chief Home Fleet. First American presence is from 01:14, where Admiral Harold R. Stark, USN welcomes the King.
