• Short Summary

    Japanese flotilla arrives.

  • Description

    Japanese cruisers at anchor.

    Location and date unknown.

    Good tracking shots of cruiser Yakumo (the ship with three funnels); and one of the two 'Asama' class armoured cruisers (Asama or Tokiwa); Japanese flag blowing in the wind. Closer shot panning along side of ship - huge funnels. Shot of a lot of Japanese sailors coming down wide stairs towards camera; most in military uniforms; some in western business suits; bowler hats.

    Japanese sailors (different uniforms than the other men - possibly those men were the bigwigs; and these are the rank & file). Sailors are outdoors; walking across small bridge. Pan on the sailors posing by a car or truck with top down; they all wave at camera.

    Some also on ON 413 O.
