New Australian cruiser 'Sydney' is launched at Wallsend.
Full title reads: "FOR AUSTRALIAN NAVY - H.M.S. "Sydney" launched at Wallsend."
Crowds around 'Sydney' just before its launching. Mrs Bruce, wife of the Australian High Commissioner in London is to launch the cruiser. A bottle of Champaign breaks against the ship and the ship starts moving backwards. Crowds looking on - it is not possible to see Mrs Bruce - only a big bunch of flowers indicates that she is there. The new ship slides and plunges into water. Crowds cheer.
