British Royal Navy efforts to protect shipping and convoys in the English Channel during World War 1.
Boats are seen behind a breakwater on coast in United Kingdom, during World War 1. A British two-stacker I- class destroyer underway with black smoke pouring from its funnels. British soldiers with weapons and personal gear at a rail yard, with train in background. They descend stairs to a pier and board a crowded troop ferry ship. Two troop ferries underway in the English Channel. View of the British Monitor ship, "Marshal Soult" mounting two 15-inch guns. British soldiers loaded aboard two troop ships departing the United Kingdom (one is a side-wheeler). Women on the pier waving goodbye. A British gunboat underway. View from stern of a boat putting out a good wake. A dirigible low over the water and a steaming warship seen in background. Workmen marching across the mole protecting the German submarine (U-boat) base at Zeebrugge, Belgium (Slate says before it was blown up by the British).
