    Farnborough Hampshire

    Title: "An Artistic Family. Mr. Vernon March - his 6 brothers and sisters - whose design for Canada's £20,000 National War Memorial has been selected from over 100 others".

    M/S of Vernon standing on a revolving pedestal in his studio, he is working on a large Romanesque statue of a man. M/S of Vernon and two other men (his brothers?) working on a large bronze statue. M/S of a woman working on a small statuette on a plinth, probably Vernon's sister. L/S of Vernon and his five brothers and one sister posing in front of an enormous bronze statue. Panning shot along a row of the six brothers and one sister.

    After a few seconds of spacing, cuts / out takes follow at 01:54:36. M/S of some of the brothers lifting a statue with a chain pulley. C/U of Vernon using a strange brass instrument, looks like a pair of compasses. M/S of one of the brothers adding finishing touches to an oil painting of Prince Albert. More shots of the brothers working on individual statuettes. The rest of the shots are the same or similar to the cut part of the story.

    Note: some shots in the cuts / out takes are separated by a few seconds of white spacing.
