  • Short Summary

    Large crowds turn up for 'Navy Week' at Chatham docks, Kent.

  • Description

    Chatham, Kent.

    Full titles read: "WE'VE GOT A NAVY ! - Thousands flock to Chatham's 'Navy Week to see great array of Britain's sea power - and at the same time help naval charities."

    High angle shots looking down on Chathams run down derelict looking dockland areas. People make their way across ramps on board Submarines belonging to the Royal Navy. L/S's of senior looking naval officer in uniform. He stands on podium giving a speech to the crowds of people gathered around him. L/S's of two large warships tied up on the dockside. L/S of people on the deck of the ship next to the gun turrets.

    Intertitle reads: "Contrast ! - full size model of the HMS KENT built in 1762 and HMS Medway giant Submarine depot and repair ship - largest in the world - having 185 officers and 2,000 men !"

    L/S's and M/S's of the HMS KENT dwarfed next to the enormous liner.
