Opens with three unknown destroyers moored to a bouy. Short frame of a battle ship's turret, then three PC class decoy ('Q') ships with other unknown ships in the distance.
Three 'V' class destroyers with dockyard cranes behind.
Then on to two destroyers at a buoy, nearest, with ensign flying, is a 'Marksman' class. In distance is a four funnel protected cruiser of Diadem or Cressy class.
Approaching a battleship of Queen Elizabeth class, possibly HMS Warspite, secured to dolphins. Pass down starboard side. Next is Erebus class monitor HMS Terror with large 15 inch gun turret.
Shot of steam pinnace passing a battleship of St Vincent or Bellerophon class.
Finishes with return past Queen Elizabeth class battleship (Warspite?) and cross ahead of ship giving view from bow.
