Queen Mother launches Britain's biggest tanker the 'British Queen' at John Brown's shipyard.
Titles read: "CLYDEBANK - ROYAL LAUNCHING".
At John Brown's shipyard we see the Queen Mother (Queen Elizabeth) wandering around and speaking to people in the crowd (including 7-year-old Robert Doig) before launching Britain's biggest tanker, the 'British Queen'.
Several shots of the tanker. The Queen Mother and officials look up at the enormous craft. Men work to move the blocks from the base of the ship just before the launching. The Queen Mother lets go of a bottle that smashes against the side of the ship. It moves slowly down the slipway and the huge crowd cheers.
