Four Warships in Rough Seas
Warships on manoeuvres, possibly at a naval review
A row of warships, (six are visible) have formed line and are at full steam. The scene is filmed from the stern of one of the ships. It's possible this film it was shot by the British Biograph Company during the Diamond Jubilee Review of the Fleet at Spithead on 26th June 1897. The company certainly filmed at this event.
