    British troops boarding troop ship 'Neuralia' to reinforce garrisons in Aden and Malta.

  • Description

    Troops embark for Malta and Aden. Originally part of News in a Nutshell - international news stories in brief.

    Southampton, Hampshire.

    Various shots of soldiers from British Army and sailors from Royal Navy boarding troop ship, 'Neuralia'. We see them carrying kit bags and walking up gangplank. They are bound for Malta and Aden. Narrator keen to point out their departure "is in no way connected with political events" and that garrisons at Malta and Aden (Yemen) have long been undermanned. Various shots of ship departing - the troops wave to quayside from crowded decks.
