    I see only the first part of what's included in the description of this clip - "Various shots of crew onboard destroyer, camera pans across them. C/U plaque 'H.M.S. Norfolk' " - followed by two or three very brief shots, then it ends.

    The rest all appears to be missing - "M/S crew sat on guns giving three cheers. L/S crew gathered together, they wave. Camera pans across various ships. M/S lookouts on bridge. C/U name 'Duke of York' on side of ship. Various shots as crew pose with ship's cat and lifebelt 'H.M.S. Belfast'. C/U two crew members with cat. Various shots of ships and crews. Various shots officers on deck talking and laughing. Various shots of the ships."

    Is the rest of the clip available? Or part of another perhaps?
