    Southampton, Hampshire.

    Various shots of the Queen Elizabeth liner in dry dock. Unusual views from beneath the ship, looking up at the hull. A man cleans a huge propellor - he looks like Tom Thumb.

    More shots of men working to clean the ship. The anchor is cleaned and lifted. The railings are striped and repainted. Rigging is checked.

    Several shots inside the ship of the larger rooms. Men are seen varnishing furniture in a room - quite dark.
