Amazing footage!
I seem to recall that Guzwell was a bit of a photographer. What is also amazing is that this old school film footage did not get destroyed when Tzu Hang was pitch poled, forcing them to limp into port in Chile.
I've read both Guzwell's and the Smeeton's books. Both are pretty amazing people, and yes, from a different time and place. Those were the days of the intrepid British explorers who would go anywhere. The Smeeton's account of their time spent in India and Asia are pretty incredible as well.
I'm glad they got some footage of the cat.
