Summary: A Royal Navy ship in harbour, possibly Plymouth, before the First World War.
Description: A long pan over a Weymouth Class light cruiser at anchor, showing it in some detail. On shore a Royal Navy commander hears a speech from the local mayor, and receives a presentation. The sailors then hold sports, water-jousting on the open green (note the cine-cameraman at work).
