Title:HMS ANTRIM FIRES TWO SEASLUG MISSILES [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 4536
Other titles:POST-WAR NAVAL OPERATIONS - MISCELLANEOUS [Allocated Series Title]
Summary: Aerial sequence showing HMS Antrim underway in coastal waters. The destroyer fires two Seaslug Mk 2 SAM missiles.
Description: Various aerial shots of HMS Antrim (D.18) underway at sea in moderate to rough conditions - coast in background of some shots. She fires two Seaslug missiles, one onto the port bow and one onto the port quarter - in both cases the cameraman is filming from off to starboard and holds on the ship rather than panning to follow the missiles' flight.
