Description: Harbour scene with mountains in the background. Steam launch comes alongside towing five ship's boats crowded with ratings and marines. Local people watch as the sailors disembark. Crowds pass waterfront buildings. Sailors fraternise with a group of local women, one of whom mimics guitar playing with her broom. Street scene - two policemen pass by, a crowd of marines and ratings pose for camera. Medium shot of a woman standing before vegetable and fruit stalls - she chases off one of the local men who invades the picture - naval ratings pass by in the background.
