• Short Summary

    Queen Elizabeth launches new ship 'Duke of York' in Scotland.

  • Description

    Scotland.

    Various shots of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother) arriving to shipyard to launch HMS Duke of York. National anthem is played. Queen getting ready to launch the ship, she chats with officials. Prime Minster Winston Churchill is seen standing next to the King. There seems to be a very good atmosphere on dais. Crowd cheering, King, Queen and Mr Churchill chatting to officials and laughing, pretty informal. There are no shots of the ship.

    Natural sound only.
