    Various shots of British naval ships at sea off Scotland.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Off Scotland. 'We've got a Navy' and every British heart will thrill to these pictures of Britain's might taken during this year's Naval manoeuvres (T/C obscures rest)."

    Scotland.

    Pan across sailors taking part in religious service on the deck of a warship. Closer shot of the vicar reading the service. The sailors all put their hats on at the end of the service. They run off at the double across the deck.

    Some sailors climb into the ships rowing boat and row off.

    Sailors prepare life rafts on the deck. Shots of various officers looking on.

    Shots of warship at sea. Shots of warship firing guns.

    Shots of men working controls in the ship's engine room. Various controls and dials.

    Shots of ships - presumably on manoeuvres. Sailor in gas mask keeps a lookout.

    Good shot of ships at sunset. - Very atmospheric.

    Sailors throw life raft over the side. Various shots of men on deck.

    N.B. Some of this material looks like cuts rather than a story. Not clear if this belongs in 30/46 - no records.
