Film Number:ADM 1566
Other titles:POST-WAR NAVAL OPERATIONS - MISCELLANEOUS [Allocated Series Title]
Summary: A children's party is held on the deck of HMS Albion during a visit to Copenhagen.
Description: Shots of a children's party held on the flightdeck of HMS Albion, alongside in Copenhagen. The amusements include a slide, roundabout, see-saws, and a miniature train. The pièce de resistance is a mock jet fighter made from a drop tank, and rigged to run down a rope from the bridge to the flightdeck. The plane is extremely artful, equipped with details like wing-tip fuel tanks, landing skids, squadron badge and recognition codes, and a carefully crafted open cockpit for its young pilots. Understandably, there is a long queue for this particular ride.
