Members of the Crown Film Unit prepare for 'action' on the deck of the submarine HMS TRIBUNE (named HMS TYRANT in the film), as two members of the ship's crew await their cue. Standing at the camera, left to right, are: Bill Chaston (camera operator), Jonah Jones (cameraman) and Jack Lee (director). Officers stand on the camera platform which has been built around the conning tower to watch the proceedings.
