    The Brazilian fleet. Portsmouth, Hampshire.

    Title frame: Rear-Admiral P.F. de Frontin and our South American Allies; guests of the [British] Navy. This is just after the end of World War One. GV ships in harbour; tugboat goes by in FG. Another shot; from a bit raised; of part of 2 ships; with Brazilian flags flying. Sailors; in dark uniforms; walk up ramp onto ship; salute. Slowly pan right across deck; with Brazilian sailors hanging out and having a sort of dance party; several of them are dancing together in pairs -- festive and a bit bizarre. CU smiling young sailor standing at the Victrola phonograph; turning the big horn speaker-- nice shot. Another view ship; with the Rear Admiral (?) and another officer coming up from below deck. CU de Frontin on deck; many cranes etc. on docks in BG Shot of Brazilian flag flying.
