STK-ID 2331

MLS of Royal Canadian Air Force flag being displayed by members of the 1922 expedition while a small group of Inuits stand by. A skin tent can be seen near the group. Snow covered hills fill the background. Closer shot of the flag, of Inuit children posing in front of it. Still another shot of the flag flying from a pole stuck into the ground. A man walks in, holds up the fly for the camera. Interesting sequence showing heavy seas rolling over the side of an Arctic ship, over drums of fuel lashed on deck, covering the deck then retreating. Shot, looking forward, of forward half of Arctic ship during a storm.
