    M/S of SS RH Carr, a largish vessel with the name on side. Mrs Esperson, facing away from camera, swings the champagne bottle to break it against the side to mark the launch. The vessel slides down the slipway. M/S of the side of the ship, as it slips into the water. It looks like a modern small ferry, moving forward in the harbour, as it is pulled away by a small tug.
