Title:RESOLUTION CLASS SSBN AND VALIANT CLASS FLEET SUBMARINE AT SEA [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 2052
Other titles:POST-WAR NAVAL OPERATIONS - MISCELLANEOUS [Allocated Series Title]
Summary: Aerial shots of a Resolution Class SSBN and a Valiant Class fleet submarine cruising together in Scottish coastal waters.
Description: Camera aircraft picks up the wake of Resolution ballistic missile submarine, and closes to give a good view from directly astern. HA.MS to the starboard fore-plane and the patterns of spray as it cuts the water pushed up by the bows. MS of the bridge fin where a White Ensign flutters from a short mast. LS to a Wessex helicopter hovering near, and presumably filming, a Valiant Class fleet submarine, with the Resolution Class boat in the background - the camera crosses the fleet submarine's wake to come up on its starboard side. The two submarines steam in parallel before the Valiant turns to port to widen the gap.
