The clip begins with a view of Aberdaron, followed by footage of men carrying bags and boxes of supplies across the beach to boats by the shore (including a box labelled 'Corn Flakes'). The supplies are loaded on board and then rowed out to Bardsey Island. Close to the shore some of the supplies are transferred to a second rowing boat which is towed to Bardsey Island behind the other boat. A man in the first boat does some bailing out. The clip ends with the boats approaching the harbour.
