  • Short Summary

    The Prince of Wales visits the fishing boats and workers at Grimsby.

  • Description

    Full titles read: '"Our Skipper Prince" - The Prince of Wales "Master of the Fishing Fleets" spends crowded day at Grimsby.'

    Grimsby, Lincolnshire.

    Various shots show the Prince of Wales (Duke of Windsor, King Edward VIII) walking about fishing boats and the docks of Grimsby, accompanied by a large entourage and watched by huge crowds of fishermen. The Prince climbs the stepladder of a ship (?), followed by another man. L/S of a section of a bridge being lifted to allow a ship through; it is covered with flags and people on it wave - presumably the Prince is among them!
