  • Short Summary

    Good footage of fishermen in harbour and trawlers that were damaged by Russians.

  • Description

    No titles. British Trawlers Shelled by Russians - 1905.

    Location of events unknown - Hull?

    Pan across trawlers in harbour - some look badly damaged. People wander about the docks. Two women and a group of men are shown damage to a boat by some others.

    Several shots of three men posing beside part of a ship with several shell or bullet holes in it. Close shots of damaged areas of ships. A man leans over the side of a trawler and moves a pole about in the water - perhaps to show us the damage below water level.

    M/S and C/Us of fishermen talking together and posing for the camera. M/S of a young man in a suit and cap (which he takes off). M/S of the man posing with his family - four young boys and a woman (his mother?) - all seem to be in mourning. Perhaps their father was killed in the attack on the ships?
