H.M.S. Renown is spruced up ready for a royal tour.
Item title reads: " The Royal Tour - HMS Renown is a 'picture ship' in her coat of silver paint - in readiness for tour of Duke and Duchess of York."
Various shots of the ship, its guns and turrets, sailors or men at work cleaning the decks, with a line of men scrubbing the deck on their hands and knees. Low angle shot of the funnel, pan to men painting. Dark smoke billows from the funnel. The men are still scrubbing the deck, rear view, this time. M/S large emblem of Duke of York painted on part of the ship.
Note: mammoth cleaning job for the deck scrubbers!
