    Title missing.

    Aerial shots of two ships. One of the warships appears to be listing heavily to one side. Several other boats and ships arrive at the scene - presumably to offer help.

    This appears to be the scuttling of the battlecruiser HMAS Australia outside Sydney Heads April 12 1924

    See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLthUPfmUB8 for similar footage shot from sea level
