USS BRAINE (DD-630) 1952 MED CRUISE



USS BRAINE (DD-630) 1952 MED CRUISE




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 8mm footage that was filmed by a crewman during the 1952 med cruise.
A great look into the Black Shoe Navy in the early 1950's.
Good footage of a Midway class carrier conducting flight operations (this section is black and white, and actually looks very cool).
Great liberty scenes. Classic sailors chasing skirts (which both reminds me of me, and why I love these home movies!!).
Great UNREP scenes.
This film also contains footage of gunnery practice against targets on an island. The footage is filmed from a bunker painted in yellow and red stripes. I had not seen this before.
Just cool home movies from the Braine.
Over 18 minutes running time.

  • Produced by GRS Videos (TM). GRS Videos is dedicated to the preservation of Naval Aviation film footage. This passion began when the son of a recently deceased Korean War veteran told me how he had thrown away all of those "old 8mm films of planes flying off of a ship". Yes, I cried. Our heritage MUST be preserved. As a veteran of Naval Aviation, I have a strong interest in ensuring that our stories are not forgotten. If you have footage (16mm, 8mm, VHS, Super 8, Beta, or Digital) contact me at PLAT_Collector@verizon.net. I will also gladly trade any footage I have for new footage (any format). So, if I have Naval Aviation footage you want, and you have something I do not have, contact me and I am confident we can work something out. I am always looking for new PLAT mishaps and home movies/video of carrier operations and life on carriers. All proceeds go into obtaining and preserving more Naval Aviation footage. Gary R. Schreffler served on USS Midway (with HS-12) from 1984-1991.
