HMS BULWARK IS CHEERED BY SHIPS IN MALTA AS SHE LEAVES FOR HOME AFTER THE SUEZ OPERATION [Allocated Title]
HMS Bulwark sails from Grand Harbour at 0900 on Monday 10 December, 1956, to the accompaniment of bands and cheering parties from the other ships. The camera is on HMS Eagle
LS off the starboard bow of HMS Bulwark as she steams down Grand Harbour towards the cameraship, HMS Eagle. Bulwark passes left to right, her crew manning ship and the Sea Hawks of 804 Squadron arrayed on deck. Captain Villiers looks on. The Eagle's men line the side to watch the departing carrier and cheer her as she passes, some of them running forward to keep Bulwark in sight as she passes the outer breakwater. A rather dull and overcast day.
