The frigate HMS Chichester lies alongside at Sandakan (?), while crewmen enjoy the meagre pleasures of the town.
Reel Two. Brief opening shot showing a Chinese lady, a towel wrapped around her, in what is presumably the cameraman's bathroom - unfortunately underexposed. Cut to various views of HMS Chichester alongside the Government Wharf at Sandakan (?). Pan over local craft in the harbour. CU as Lieutenant-Commander (unidentified) comes on board. Miscellaneous scenes onboard Chichester. Long sequence following two ratings on shore leave - they buy some fruit, drink some Carlsberg beer.
