Canadian sailors, wearing steel helmets, aboard an Antiaircraft destroyer, in World War 2. They watch as two practice target shooting with rifles on the ship's deck. One of them wears a cap with Canadian Naval Petty Officer insignia. View of the rifle targets. Sailors hurry to a quad-mounted Mark III Vickers .50 antiaircraft machine gun position as an officer looks through a sighting device. The gunners begin firing. Another gun crew mans what appears to be a QF 3 inch 20 cwt anti-aircraft gun, while two sailors fire hand-held Lewis machine guns, skyward. View forward from the bridge of the ship. She appears to have two more forward deck-mounted 3 inch anti-aircraft guns. View astern showing the British White Ensign flying. Other warships are seen steaming on the horizon. A sailor standing near depth charges on deck, looks through binoculars. Steamships in a convoy are seen. View of a camouflaged two-stacker destroyer in the convoy. Crew members running forward on deck, followed by explosions seen in wake of the ship as depth charges she has launched detonate.
