New York City USA Date:1918, December 25 Duration:3 min 5 sec Sound:NO SOUND
A motor launch approaches a gangplank at the port side of the battleship USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) during a Fleet Review on Christmas Day, 1918, in New York harbor. Her crew is formed up on her deck and she is returning her triple battery guns to their normal position, after having them turned and raised in salute. Scene shifts to the USS Texas (BB-35) as she drops her signal flags, while moving forward. Other warships can be seen behind her. Scene shifts again, to bow view of a stationary heavy cruiser belching heavy black smoke from her stack. Port-side view of a sleek two-stack cruiser. Sailors crowd the deck of a warship. A 4-stack destroyer is seen to her starboard. Sailors launch some kind of a floating device from a davit. Officers look over the ship's side at the device in the water. Officers being saluted and piped off the ship. Long pennants streaming from ship's tower. A fairly large rapidly moving boat filled with sailors.
