    Footage of large ship being launched.

  • Description

    Launch of ship. Location of events unknown.

    Opens with shot looking up at ship's bow from underneath; a roof with skylights overhead. Then a shot of a worker doing something bent over a counter; his face behind a protective mask; holding torch; flame and sparks. Group shot of a bunch of British soldiers waving hats. Shot looking across water at ship sliding out of the building; then pan on ship moving across harbour. Next; what seems to be a tracking shot from another boat; of the new ship and a tug; moving together; pan on to CU side of ship with anchor.
