The movie (which I saw MANY years ago in part so this is based on vague recall) is about a sailor who survives the destruction of the Amesbury and is picked up by the Essen. When Essen seeks a remote safe inlet to hide and repair her battle damage, he escapes and becomes a sniper, preventing the repairs from proceeding, keeping Essen there until superior British forces arrive.
The clip is of the Essen/Amesbury battle seen from the British side, and is pretty good quality.
