“Los bous vascos-Euskal boauak” (Spanish-Basque, video)

Images filmed on May 21, 1937 during the escort service rendered by the trawlers Bizkaya and Gipuzkoa on the merchant ships Habana and Goizeko-Izarra with almost 4,500 children and their childminders evacuated to France and England. The trawlers escorted them to the limit of the 3-mile territorial waters. From there on, the Royal Navy took over the ships and protected them to their destinations. The Goizeko-Izarra arrived to Bayonne on the same day, and Habana disembarked its passengers at Southampton on June 23. These images are preserved in the Euskadiko Filmategia-Filmoteca Vasca.
