Reporters in small boats talk to deported Labour Leaders on ship 'Umgeni'.
Deported Labour Leaders.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, February 1914
Tracking shots from another boat (bouncing on waves) of battered old-looking cargo ship the 'Umgeni' (London). Several smaller ships nearby; rowing boats alongside the Umgeni.
Various shots of a group of about 20 men; all in dark suits; overcoats; hats - in small boats up next to a ship (the Umgeni). CUs of these men; M/S of a lot of men right next to the ship's hull; they are standing in the rowing boats looking at the side of ship - could be reporters, speaking to the men (deported Bolsheviks?) on the Umgeni? Also there are other men on the ship; looking down at these others; and a large boat also next to ship.
One shot of 2 sailors rowing a photographer. Close shot of stern. Shot looking up at other group of men; most of them in suits; on board the Umgeni; looking down.
