  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    Greenhithe, London.

    Scenes of the River Thames as we travel along on a boat towards Greenhithe. We pass the training / sailing ship HMS Worcester with the Cutty Sark alongside; Naval cadets are manning the yards on both ships (standing along the length and masts of the ships).

    Several shots on board HMS Worcester shows the distinguished guest Sir Julian Foley, Under Secretary of the Board of Trade, presenting medals and trophies to cadets on Prize Day. M/S of Cadet R W Bentley, who was awarded the top honour of the King's Medal. After the ceremony, the cadets wave their hats in the air as if giving three cheers.

    Note: commentary in paperwork states the Cutty Sark was given to HMS Worcester this year as an extra training ship.
