A rare piece of footage showing life aboard Windjammers in the 1930’s

The exhibition 'Windjammers: The Last Grain Races' is on now at the SA Maritime Museum.
This footage is spliced together from three films in the SA Maritime Museum Collection capturing life on board a windjammer.
Footage was shot by Alan Villiers on 'Parma' in 1933, and on 'Passat' by Thomas Wells in 1938 and 1939 and Jack Wadrop in 1948.
