    River Clyde, Scotland.

    Three funnel liner ship at sea. Closer shot of people waving from various decks.

    On board are men and women - many wearing traditional Scottish costume. A bagpipe band are in the foreground. Some people are waving the stars and stripes flag of the United States of America, others are waving the Scottish flag of St. Andrew.

    Two men wearing Tam O' Shanter hats shake hands. Lots of greeting and shaking of hands - presumably between the Scots and their American visitors.
