    MS British survivor taken from Graf Spee before scuttling speaking into microphone. Snow if falling as he speaks. He says: Thank you to royal navy for bringing him back. He was treated well as POW (P.O.W. - Prisoner of War) aboard the Graf Spee and he wants to see family soonest. He also comments on allegations that they were gassed.
