Sir Alan (AP) Herbert is seen on the Water Gypsy and at home.
Titles read: "MEET - SIR ALAN HERBERT".
Various shots of Sir Alan (AP) Herbert - "famous wit, author, Member of Parliament and ex-Petty Officer in His Majesty's Navy" - on his cabin-cruiser the Water Gypsy, moored on the River Thames.
He gets into a small boat and makes his way to the landing stage where he gets out and looks back at the Water Gypsy. He walks into his garden and through to his house. Inside, we see him in his study, looking at a book and smoking a pipe.
