North African campaign in World War 2. Film begins with antiaircraft fire from an Allied ship, at dusk, directed at German bombers (unseen). Next, flames are seen and smoke rising from an Allied ship that has been struck by a bomb. A Destroyer Escort nearby and a small vessel in background, both send morse code messages by signal lamps. The camera boat moves around to port, astern,the striken ship, where the fire is concentrated, and moves closer as smoke obscures the stricken ship entirely. In next sequence, smoke is seen rising from two smaller ships that have also been hit.
