Summary: General views of the Anglo-French fleet as it closes on Port Said for the amphibious assault. Very badly shot, with long out of focus sequences.
Description: General LS pans about the Anglo-French fleet - LSTs moving towards Port Said with escorting frigates and destroyers. A long pan across the sky - presumably intended to pick up distant aircraft. XLS of two destroyers steaming close together, and pan left to the coast, obscured by smoke. Another pan across the sky. LS to the coast again - thick, black smoke now rises from burning oil tanks, and the cameraman pans to show the extent of smoke pall. LSs of formations of Whirlwind helicopters flying low over the water.
