Untitled with no end credits, but presumed to be the second reel of 3 reels of British official film about the Royal Navy. The commentary begins with the words: "The more general fleet action being ordered the signal is flashed round and the business in hand takes on a more important note. The fleet will split up into two opposing forces which attempt realistic manoueveres to sink eachother out of sight.' The reel includes the 'epilogue' commentary towards end referring to the outbreak of the Second World War, 'And now war is upon us...' The film has no end credits.
