  • Short Summary

    The damaged steam ship Nurtureton is towed into port.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Off Gravesend. Half A Ship. SS 'Nurtureton' (6.272 tons) which broke in half in gale off Dungeness - successfully towed to safety."

    Gravesend, Kent.

    Shots of tug next to the Steam Ship 'Nurtureton'. The bow of the steamer is completely missing. Camera travels round the damage and shows the extent of the problem. It continues the move to come to the stern of the ship where the name and port of origin are clearly visible.

    Connected to the story - Fog ... the seaman's worst enemy! - 31/3. It is not clear in the issue sheets if 'Half a Ship' actually belongs in 31/11.
