    Selected Originals (offcuts, selected scenes, out-takes, rushes) for story - ROYAL DAY ON CARRIER - 59/36.

    Duplicate of newsreel story without sound or titles.

    Followed by extra footage showing Prince Charles being given a tour by officers below decks. The Queen meets the crew in what looks like the kitchens. More footage of the rum rations being measured out. She is joined by Prince Charles. Charles seems to be sniffing several times, or could be a twitch. The Queen and Prince look at several other areas below decks. The Queen drives past a line of sailors and officers; she is standing on the back of an open Land Rover.

    More shots of the aircraft demonstration, similar to cut story. Most shots quite wobbly here. Queen meets bearded pilots on deck. March past of naval officers and sailors. Queen is presented with 2 rosebowls. Prince Charles is given a 'Rum Tub' stud box and a bracelet in a case for Princess Anne. The Royal Barge pulls away from the carrier as the men on board salute, take their hats off and give three cheers.

    Several air shots of the carrier at sea and the aircraft demonstration.
