    Titles read: "SONS OF THE SEA!"

    Portsmouth, Hampshire.

    Various shots of sea cadets / sailors on board the training ships 'Foudroyant' and 'Implacable' in Portsmouth Harbour. They climb up rigging, do hornpipes and exercises on deck, swing clubs around in formation, tie knots and eat food. They practice getting into rowing boats and race against each other, rowing across the water.

    Some look more like pirates as they set off cannons, while wearing just trousers and scarves on their heads. Two young Naval cadets stand either side of a sign reading 'Remember Nelson' over a large wheel. Another cadet rings a bell with 1807 on the side of it.
