French naval cadets in training on a ship in dock.
Titles read: "YOUNG FRANCE!"
Various shots show young French naval cadets on a training ship called the Angel that is moored in dock. The boys (they look very young!) tumble out of hammocks, then do exercises on deck (whilst wearing just shorts) - a couple of boys have a boxing spar. The (fully dressed) boys swab the decks and then stand in line for inspection. C/U of a cadet with 'La Corvette' on the band of his hat. The boys line up to get their food, climb up and down the rigging and have races in rowing boats on the water.
