    SummaryItem on the Marine Services coastal surveillance. Shows torpedo boat exercises, destruction of enemy mines, torpedo practice, and submarine detection by hydrophone.
    NoteThe print of this film held by the NFTVA is catalogued as FILMING THE FLEET, which is taken from the BBFC Certificate, which opens the reel. This would suggest that the above item was shown alongside the Twentieth Century Fox film on UK release. See also separate entry for EIRES PORT CONTROL.

DESCRIPTION: HRH The Prince of Wales Makes a Royal Appeal To You On Behalf of King George's Jubilee Trust SHOTLIST: Close and CU shots of the Prince making the appeal. Prince says: 'I want to say a word about King George V Jubilee Trust it is not an Appeal to charity but a tribute to the King from the kindest people in this country who do not wish 1935 to pass by without leaving amongst us a living and permanent commemoration of this Jubilee year. With the approval of the King and Queen I have established this Trust, for the well-being of the rising generation of this country, and I can think of no cause which should have the national appeal. This Jubilee Trust will be able to assist the work of the existing Voluntary Youth Organisation of this country, it will help to provide money and better facilities for the education and recreation of girls and boys between the ages of 14 and 18. It can encourage in a far greater number of them to cultivation of abilities and craftsmanship ... it will enable branches of these organisations to be started in places where they do not exist and it will concentrate on areas rural as well as suburban where this kind of work has been held back by lack of local funds. There is no need for new organisations and the Trust will merely help and coordinate the work of those already in existence in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. I hope I have said enough to convince you that the object of this Trust is worthy of the organisation which it will be ... send contributions, however, small, to King George V Jubilee Trust, St James's Palace, London SW1.'

    SummaryMOVIETONE CARD TITLE: Memorial to Pioneers. DESCRIPTION: Mr Sean Lemass, deputy Premier of the Irish Republic, unveiled the inscription of a memorial which has been put up near Clifden in the wild Connemara country. It commemorates Alcock and Brown, the pioneers of Atlantic flight. Forty years ago, they took off from Newfoundland in a Vickers Vimy bomber. Flying without any of the modern aids, they were the first men to make a non-stop air crossing of the Atlantic. For their daring achievement, both pilots were later knighted. Now, the monument (near where they landed) is a permanent reminder of a great flying achievement. SHOTLIST: MS memorial (key). GV sea & countryside. GV ceremony. MS Mr Lemass unveils inscription.

Rain or shine, motor racing fans were certainly not going to miss this unique occasion. With all sorts of new amenities for spectators, a magnificent programme of events and of course, the Grand Prix as a climax. Over a hundred thousand turned up to watch. With all its bends and gradients the new Brands Hatch circuit makes great demands on driving skill. Earl Mountbatten, President of the RAC arrived in a helicopter. He was naturally keen to see the RAC British and European Grand Prix (sponsored by the Daily Mail). He was to present the trophies. The whole atmosphere must have revived nostalgic memories for famous racing driver Stirling Moss. Jim Clark made sure of victory but by a margin of less than 3 seconds. A magnificent race, and after it had been won, all that remained was Jim's lap of honour. Earl Mountbatten presented the cheque for a thousand pounds and the trophy. SHOTLIST: Scenes.
