    These are various scenes from Churchill's journey to the USA on the SS Queen Mary in May 1943 for the fortnight long series of meetings codenamed Trident.
    The shots of Churchill holding a meeting with his Chiefs of Staff on board and disembarking at New York on the 11th of May can be matched with photos available from the imperial War Museum.
    Other shots seem to be taken from earlier parts of the trip with Churchill on the bridge and escort ships trying to keep up in rough weather.
