Poor quality aerial shots of warships at sea - transferred from 16 mm print.
December 2010: Venna Lovegrove volunteered information on this clip, confirming that it is C.S. Ocean Layer.
The ship caught fire on 14th June 1959 and Anthony McPherson Ross, the ship Master, gave the order to abandon ship. It was taken in tow by the German tug Wotan, and scrapped in Falmouth, Cornwall. Ironically the ship was built in Germany in 1945, never commissioned there and taken by the British government as 'spoils of war'.
