Scope and content
Item is an amateur film which captures several shots of what appears to be a destroyer-class war ship flying the flag of the Royal Navy viewed from a nearby Canadian Navy ship. A vessel flying both the flags of Nazi Germany and the British Navy is then approached, and a ceremony involving several Canadian and German navymen is held. The German kriegsmarine navymen are frisked. Several cameramen and civilians are also in attendance.
Mild perforation damage, severe warping, shrinkage, crazing/crackling on surface of film, low contrast scenes.
