Archive footage shows a Soviet naval squadron visiting Portsmouth in 1955.

The video, which shows scenes from the naval base as the ships arrive, also includes footage of a visit by 100 Soviet sailors to the Dartmouth naval academy.

It is part of the British Pathe collection of historic newsreels.
