  • Short Summary

    H.M.S. Amazon - having being frozen on the Slipway - is finally launched.

  • Description

    Southampton, Hampshire.

    Title: "If at first you don't succeed ... after being frozen on Slipway ... H.M.S. Amazon is successfully launched".

    M/S of the bow of the ship on the launch slip way, men with lump hammers knock the blocks wedged beneath the prow, tilt up to show more men pulling ropes as the ship slowly slides down the slipway. C/U of the ship entering the water creating large waves, sailors can be seen on the deck. Low angled shot of the ship in the water, looks like it was taken from another smaller vessel.

    Note: to see the first (failed) launch attempt, please refer to FROST PREVENTS A LAUNCH - G 1263.
