  1. British Pathé says

    According to a visitor to the site who has written in this footage is unlikely to be from the last voyage of the Liberte. It could be from the first one of the ship under the French flag. The ship's funnels were heightened in 1954 and fitted with a dome, but in this clips the extension has not yet taken place.

    Does anyone know for sure when this is from?
