Summary: Film fragments, part cartoon, encouraging shipyard work in Britain, 1918.
Description: A military parade is inspected by a civilian, possibly Lord Pirrie, the Controller of Shipbuilding. Then a cartoon showing a family seated for a meal with a picture of a ship at sea on their wall. The figure of Death in a German helmet conjures a torpedo to sink the ship and steals the loaf from the family table. The figure of Britannia, "Britons never shall be slaves". In actuality, a line of men queuing to work in the shipyards.
