    L/S dignitaries walk down ranks of troops. Fascists give salutes. As they approach the camera we can see that one of the inspecting group is German Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler. Hitler and other dignitaries (possibly including King Victor Emmanuel) climb on board an Italian naval launch. The boat moves off into the harbour.

    Hitler comes on board warship where he is greeted by Benito Mussolini (Il Duce). Mussolini and Hitler inspect sailors on ship. Back view of Mussolini and the Fuhrer as ships go past. Nice shot of Hitler and Mussolini chatting. Other Italian and German figures. Shot of Hitler and Heinrich Himmler.

    Hitler and other dignitaries stand on deck of ship. Aerial views of Italian fleet on manoeuvres. Fast launches speed across harbour. Ships fire salute. Lots of shots of naval vessels.

    Air to air views of a seaplane. More shots of naval vessels. Shots of ships firing guns. Hitler and Mussolini point at something. Himmler and others. Several submarines pass by on the surface. They fire their guns.
