    Shot should show children having food served on tray by ships galley staff etc. There are a few shots of a young child (girl) with the Ship's Executive officer Capt. John Nelson Horrocks sitting at the table and a bit of Hat changing. The film includes shot of . It was impossible to take the children on deck due to heavy rain.



    This assignment was originally intended to cover the visit of the USN Sixth Fleet but only the Flag ship turned up but due to the rearranged facilities given by the U.S.N. I thought it best to film something of the visit and perhaps make a item of news from same of it. Its possible that these facilities might well be very handy in the near future, though this material may not be up to much.
