Title:HMS BRAVE BORDERER ON FISHERY PROTECTION DUTIES [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 3819
Other titles:POST-WAR NAVAL OPERATIONS - MISCELLANEOUS [Allocated Series Title]
Summary: The fast patrol boat HMS Brave Borderer checks on fishing vessels in or near Britain's territorial waters.
Description: Opening shot to the dramatic wake left by Brave Borderer as she runs at speed - conditions misty, coast in background. A small trawler is hailed. After inspection the patrol boat makes off. A second fishing boat is hailed. Brave Borderer circles the Polish fish factory ship Pulaski surrounded by trawlers - one of which is the Opana. Brave Borderer continues her patrol, interrogating another trawler. A small drifter - presumably English - gets a thumbs up from the boat's captain. Brave Borderer returns to port.
