  • Description

    M/S of a Naval captain watching sailors loading a cannon / gun. M/S of young cadets boarding a battleship from a rowing boat moored beside it. M/S of a group of cadets huddle around two boys plating ropes. M/S of cadets in a rowing boat being moored next to a ship, the cadets hold their oars in the air, once the boat is moored their board the ship, saluting as they do so.

    Brief shot of crowds walking over a golf course - appears to be from another Gazette story.

    More shots of the boys sitting on the deck plating ropes. Low angled shot of young sailors sitting in a sort of modern crow's nest, they turn a large flood light in the centre on the 'nest', panning shot follows sailors as they climb down onto the deck. L/S of sailors climbing the rigging. M/S of an officer showing a group of young sailors a torpedo.

    M/S a group of sailors and cadets in gas masks. C/U of a sailor in a gas mask with a rubber ring around his neck, an officer and another sailor come into shot and remove the mask and ring. L/S of another ship and docks taken from the ship's deck, a rowing boat is coming towards the camera from the other ship. M/S of a group of sailors loading a torpedo into a cannon. M/S of a group of sailors loading a large gun / cannon.

    Note: these shots do not seem to be in chronological order - this item could possibly be cuts from an edited story - NELSON'S CUBS - in G 1102. AH 2000.
