Re: HMS Exeter - Brief aerial footage 1940
Looks staged. 13:50 in.
For those in the UK who have access to the 'Great Action' TV channel, try and find 'The Blitz on the North'.
Around 12 minutes or so into the show there is Luftwaffe film (cut with British film) of an attack on the Firth Of Forth and a few seconds of the Exeter under attack from the stern. I emphasise that it was only a few seconds, but when paused the twin 4" AA gun tubs can be seen clearly as can the vertical funnels which makes me sure it was Exeter not York.
I don't have either the technical savvy or the right 'kit' to copy the footage, but anyone who wants to see the configuration of the mid-ships deck layout should try and watch this.
