Sailors on board HMS WESTERN ISLES prepare to launch a cable to tow a damaged ship to safety during a training exercise, near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. The original caption explains that a Chief Petty Officer fires a line across to the deck of the damaged ship: "to the line is attached a rope, to the tope a hawser and to the hawser a cable. The cable is hauled in by the rescued ship, and when all is secure the ship is in tow". This operation should take about 15 minutes.
