This is a film from the Noel Beardsell Collection of the family at home and on holiday during the Second World War.
Within this film is a mixture of both black and white and colour footage of the Cameron family taken during World War II. Featured in this film are family walks in the country, playing in the family garden, a toddler putting on a gas mask, day trips to the zoo and beach, and images of the two sons growing up.
Sons of the Sea was the first and only British feature film shot using Dufaycolor, a single-strop colour process. Previously this process had only been used in sequences of Radio Parade of 1935.
