The flagship of the Mediterranean Fleet, HMS Birmingham, pays a courtesy visit to Split as part of the Fleet's autumn cruise.
HMS Birmingham lies with HMS Solebay (D.70) alongside. The Ambassador pays a visit. Ship's launch brings Admiral Yaganovich, C-in-C Yugoslav Navy, to inspect the ship - he is accompanied on his tour by Admiral Sir Ralph Edwards. LS pan over Split from the harbour - on the hillside above the town there is a huge sign bearing the single word TITO. A water polo match against a local team is played in the harbour - the cameraman's eye is caught by three swimsuited local women, two of whom are very shapely. After the water polo there are swimming races. Final MS of sailors enjoying a fraternal drink with the locals.
