Summary: HMS Warrior receives a 'traditional' Hawaiian welcome when she docks at the Honolulu Army Port.
Description: HA over the deck of HMS Warrior as she approaches the Pier 40 in the Honolulu Army Port - the ship is manned for entering port. A US Army band is playing on the quayside and four grass-skirted women dance in the Hawaiian manner. A large placard set up on the roof of the terminal bids aloha to HMS Warrior. After the ship has docked, the dancers continue their performance on the flightdeck, surrounded by an appreciative audience. One of the dancers invites a tall and rather heavily built Commander to join her in the dance - this he does with much good humour. The Commander leads the men in cheering the dancers.
